World Hearing Day

Wednesday 3rd March 2021

Today, 3 March 2021, is World Hearing Day. It is held each year to raise awareness on how to prevent deafness and hearing loss and promote ear and hearing care across the world.

Hearing Care for ALL

This year’s theme is ‘Hearing Care for ALL! Screen, Rehabilitate, Communicate’ and will also be the launch date of the World Report on Hearing.

Good hearing and communication is important at all stages of life. Hearing loss (and related ear diseases) can be avoided through preventative actions such as: protection against loud sounds; good ear care practices and immunisation.

Hearing loss (and related ear diseases) can be addressed when it is identified in a timely manner and appropriate care sought. If you are at risk of hearing loss it is important to have your hearing checked regularly. And, if you suffer from hearing loss it is important to seek care from a health care provider.
