Today, International Cochlear Implant Day 2021, Cochlear Implant (CI) International Community of Action (CIICA) was launched. CIICA is a new and innovative community of organisations, individuals and experts sharing the vision of increasing access to cochlear implants, and lifelong support for those who benefit from them.
“CIICA provides an opportunity for a new way of working for cochlear implant advocacy groups and individuals, with opportunities for sharing and collaboration.”
Led by users and family groups, working closely with professional organisations, experts in the field of CI and other stakeholders, CIICA will:
- Increase access to the provision of CI and lifelong services globally
- Develop a global community of CI advocacy groups, with opportunities to share activities and resources and collaborate to strengthen the user and family voice
- Provide CI advocates with the tools for change they need to increase access to CI services
