3rd March 2017 will be ‘World Hearing Day'
We are supporting and raising awareness of ‘Action for hearing loss: make a sound investment’, with this years aim in mind, to draw attention to the economic impact of hearing loss and cost effectiveness of interventions to address it.
The annual event was started at the First International Conference on Prevention and Rehabilitation of Hearing Impairment in Beijing, China in 2007, the day aims to raise awareness and knowledge, whilst promoting ear and hearing care across the world, now celebrating its 10th year running!
Unaddressed hearing loss poses a high cost for the economy globally and has a significant impact on the lives of those who are affected. Interventions to address hearing loss are available and are cost-effective, therefore should be acknowledged.
World Hearing Day 2017 highlights actions which can be undertaken by decision-makers to address hearing loss on a global scale.
Action for hearing loss: make a sound investment
World Hearing Day 2016
The theme for World Hearing Day 2016 (last year) was ‘Childhood hearing loss: act now, here is how!’ This drew attention to the fact that the majority of causes which lead to hearing loss in children can again, actually be prevented through public health measures if understood.
