WORLD HEARING DAY 2017

WORLD HEARING DAY 2017
01/03/2017

World Hearing Day is an annual event held on 3rd March. It is promoted by the World Health Organisation (WHO) aiming to raise awareness and promote ear and hearing care across the world.

The theme for 2017 is Action for Hearing Loss: make a sound investment, which aims to draw attention to the economic impact of hearing loss. Many people live with unaddressed hearing loss, and this can pose a high cost for the global economy and significantly impact the lives of those affected. In 2017, the WHO aim to build awareness of the cost-effective interventions that are available to address hearing loss.

World Hearing Day 2017 highlights actions which can be undertaken by decision-makers to address hearing loss. Screening for early identification, rehabilitation through hearing devices, captioning, prevention and sign language are amongst the strategies which can help to improve the understanding of hearing loss and its consequences.

WHO have produced a brochure addressing this year’s theme, which we think makes interesting reading. You can read it here.
