Student Auditive Health

The World Health Organization (2018) estimates 466 million hearing impaired people worldwide, including 34 million children aged zero to 15 years. In the school context, at different levels of education there are etiological factors that can be avoided or minimized by promotion and prevention actions, since the World Health Organization (2018) states that 60% of the causes of hearing loss in children are preventable. There is a policy in Brazil between the Ministry of Health and Education that aims to promote the health of students called the Health at School Program (PSE). This program lacks studies that aim to develop, validate and implement technologies, strategies and actions in favor of School Hearing Health. Based on this assumption this project aims to: Develop, validate and implement a school hearing health program that includes the identification, monitoring and education in hearing health of students of the Municipal and State Education Network in the school context aiming to promote and prevent at different levels of health care
