The 2ears2hear team want to congratulate Minister Ryall and the Ministry of Health on increasing the funding for adults needing a cochlear implant by $1.6m per year. This was an important and necessary step to meet the needs of adults with severe to profound hearing loss.


Adults like Lance Cairns, who received a Cochlear Implant after years of struggling with hearing loss, will benefit.

We now look forward to the government addressing the needs of children this week when 2ears2hear representatives meet with officials.
