In the developed world we improve lives, in the developing world we save lives.
Giovanni Danesi
For more than 10 years, GEO’s mission has been to prevent the needless deaths of those who suffer from ear disease in the developing world. We use the GEO formula and develop solutions for today's global health challenges for the hard of hearing, deaf, and those who suffer from chronic ear disease.

From American Samoa to the Ukraine, GEO improves the lives of those with ear disease by educating the healthcare workforce, strengthening health systems, and innovating to save lives for those who might not otherwise have access to surgical care.

GEO knows that when a patient survives life-threatening ear disease, the family will survive, the family will be stronger, the country will advance, and our global world will be a better place.
