Global Missions™

The Oticon Hearing Foundation Partners with volunteer hearing care professionals and non-profit organizations to provide sustainable access to hearing care and hearing solutions for people and communities around the world. These collaborative initiatives deliver immediate lasting benefits for people with hearing loss and the communities that serve them.


The Oticon Hearing Foundation and the American Academy of Audiology Foundation (AAAF) have partnered to underwrite the cost for two audiologists to join a unique humanitarian mission to remote riverfront communities near Parintins, Brazil. The practitioners selected for Project Amazon 2013 work side-by-side with staff from the Oticon Clinic in Parintins. The non-profit clinic is a service of the Viva o Som Foundation, a group dedicated to securing financial and human resources to improve the quality of life of people in Brazil's most impoverished communities.
