Our Board members all have a certain degree of hearing loss, and they carry out their work on an honorary basis. They are elected to serve a two-year term at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) by our delegates. They all have experience working or volunteering at the national levels in their own countries.

Since the UN Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities (CRPD) is now ratified by all major European countries and the European Union, this convention serves as a foundation for all of our work.

The main focus is subtitling, hearing loops, and hearing loss rehabilitation. We aim to facilitate collaborations between our members and raise awareness of hearing loss and its impact on the general public.

Our statement and convention text adopted at the 2007 EFHOH Annual General Meeting in Oslo, Norway is found here.
