IFHOHYP continues to be an advocate to represent the views and interests of hard of hearing young people on European and International levels, through attendance at events, meetings, trainings, and communication with various institutions. In addition, this work programme aims to address other important goals such as being transparent in our dissemination of information through our communication platforms, Communication, expansion of the organization towards Asia, North and South America, and the overall inclusion of hard of hearing young people.
