Abstract

According to the World Health Organisation estimate, the global burden of illness from chronic ear infection affects about 4% of the world population (up to 330 million) with ear discharge and 60% of whom (up to 200 million) suffer from significant hearing impairment.1 Alarmingly, over 90% of the burden of chronic ear infections is borne by low‐ and middle‐income countries (LMICs).
