According to the World Health Organization, deafness is Mexico’s most prevalent disability. Three in every 1,000 babies are born with some degree of hearing loss. These numbers increase to six in 1,000 because people acquire it after birth, owing to diverse causes such as heredity, illness, accidents and certain medicines. The families of many deaf and hard-of-hearing children cannot afford even the most modest treatment/rehabilitation interventions.
