The Rapid Assessment of Hearing Loss (RAHL) is a new survey methodology recently developed by the International Centre for Evidence in Disability at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine. The RAHL is a population-based survey of the prevalence and causes of hearing loss in people aged 50 and
over. This project aims to provide evidence on the prevalence and causes of hearing loss in one province of Cambodia for people aged 50 and over; to identify the main barriers to the uptake of ear care services in urban and rural areas; and to improve the baseline data for planning of ear care services and awareness of the need to improve health policy, programming, and delivery.
