World Hearing Day

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

The theme for 2023 is:

“Ear and hearing care for all! Let’s make it a reality”.

Key messages:

1. Ear and hearing problems are among the most common problems encountered in the community.

2. Over 60% of these can be identified and addressed at the primary level of care.

3. Integration of ear and hearing care into primary care services is possible through training and capacity building at this level.

4. Such integration will benefit people and help countries move towards the goal of universal health coverage.
