Last week we had our own celebration with the #CochlearImplantDay and tomorrow, on 3 March we commemorate the World Hearing Day.
The theme for this year is “Childhood hearing loss: act now, here is how!”, promoted by WHO World Health Organization. You can follow their conference tomorrow via internet.
As well you can follow them and us on twitter.
You can find information about it in several languages: http://www.who.int/pbd/deafness/world-hearing-day/2016/en/
The theme for World Hearing Day 2016 is ‘Childhood hearing loss: act now, here is how!’ This aims to draw attention to the fact that the majority of causes which lead to hearing loss in children can be prevented through public health measures. Further, those who have hearing loss can benefit greatly from early identification and suitable, timely interventions. The day aims to raise awareness about public health strategies to reduce the prevalence and impact of hearing loss.
Materials related to World Hearing Day 2016 will be posted here as they are finalized.
