Today, February 25, 2021, is International Cochlear Implant Day. HLAA (the national organization) announced the launch of the Cochlear Implant International Community of Action (CIICA). “CIICA is a new and innovative community of organizations, individuals and experts sharing the vision of increasing the access to cochlear implants and lifelong support for those who benefit from them. HLAA is one of the founding members of CIICA” -from the HLAA website.
Check out the CIICA briefing paper (found here) to read more about why this organization was started and its global reach.
