This report was commissioned for the ‘HearWell Collaboration’ – an international collaboration with the aim of developing a comprehensive and relevant research portfolio in the areas of prevention, ultra-early detection and treatment of Noise Induced Hearing loss (NIHL) and tinnitus.

The report outlines the existing evidence for a range of issues relating to NIHL and tinnitus pertaining primarily to a military population.

The report covers:
• The prevalence and incidence of NIH and tinnitus
• The detection of NIHL and tinnitus
• The impact of NIHL and tinnitus on Quality-of-Life (living with HL)
• The impact of NIHL and tinnitus on the ability to work of military personnel.
• The cost implications of NIHL and tinnitus and the cost-effectiveness of screening and prevention programmes

For each of these issues, the volume and nature of the existing secondary evidence (e.g. systematic reviews) and primary evidence was ascertained and key findings and methodological issues reported. This report aims to inform decisions about future research priorities.
