This report presents information on ear and hearing health outreach services provided to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and young people in the Northern Territory from July 2012 to June 2015. It also provides information on the hearing health status and ear conditions experienced by these young people. Services include those provided by audiologists; ear, nose and throat (ENT) specialists; and Child Hearing Health Coordinators (CHHCs). They are funded by the Australian Government, through the National partnership agreement on stronger futures in the Northern Territory (SFNT) (for children and young people aged under 16) and the Healthy ears – better hearing, better listening program (for children and young people aged 21 and under). This is the third annual report in its series.
