Collaborating nationally and internationally with both parents and professionals is important to us as we value community.

THRIVE is a member of the Global Coalition of Parents of Children who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing (GPODHH). This position paper from 2010 gives insight into the ethos of this coalition as they represent families across the world.

Through this affiliation, the THRIVE leadership is represented on the World Health Organization’s World Hearing Forum. Consequently, THRIVE is also a collaborating stakeholder in the South African World Report on Hearing advocacy and influencers group.
