World Hearing Day is an advocacy event held every March 3rd to increase knowledge about hearing loss and how to prevent it. It was known as the International Ear Care Day since it started in 2007 then it was changed to World Hearing Day in 2016 by the World Health Organization.
World Hearing Day 2017 is themed as “Action for hearing loss: make a sound investment” which aims to inform people on the economic impact of hearing loss. The event highlights the strategies that can be considered to address and mitigate hearing loss. Among the strategies are:
