Lidia Best, CPACC
Lidia Best is the President of the European Federation of Hard of Hearing People ( EFHOH), and co- vice Chair of International Telecommunication Union Joint Coordination Activities on Accessibility and Human Factors ( ITU JCA-AHF)
Lidia brings unique knowledge as an expert with lived experience, as a person who is hard of hearing and a cochlear implant user. Her work has specific focus on accessibility, raising standards, policy development, innovation, and training for deaf and hard of hearing people.
European Federation of Hard of Hearing ( EFHOH) works to promote awareness, understanding and collaborative practical actions that remove the barriers for hard of hearing people to reach their full potential with access to affordable, universal hearing care and rehabilitation, including hearing aids and cochlear implants. This is optimised by an accessible society with public services, hearing loops, subtitling, captioning and assistive devices.
EFHOH’s overall objective is to protect, promote and raise awareness on the rights of persons with hearing loss in Europe: thus, facilitating legislative and social protection. This is realised through practical actions in collaboration with members and other stakeholders
