Comprehensive Hearing Health Program (CHHP)


The Hearing Center of Excellence, or HCE, is launching a Comprehensive Hearing Health Program, or CHHP, for the Total Force. This program is designed to eliminate noise-induced hearing loss, or NIHL, through effective education, monitoring, training, and fitting of hearing protection.

The HCE CHHP focuses on developing educational tools to increase service member awareness and understanding of the hazardous effects of noise and NIHL as an invisible injury. The CHHP also provides annual hearing health services, hearing health education, hearing protection fitting, and annual hearing testing for each service member.
