Celebrate World Hearing Day on March 3
The Reason for World Hearing Day
World Hearing Day is held each year on March 3 to raise awareness on how to prevent hearing loss, tinnitus, deafness, and how to care for your ears. The Office of Prevention of Blindness and Deafness of the World Health Organization (WHO) creates a campaign each year to share information and awareness about hearing loss and how to improve hearing care.
What is the focus of this year’s World Hearing Day?
This year’s theme is Check your hearing! Key messages include checking your hearing yearly, especially people at a higher risk of hearing loss. Many people wait years after the first signs of a hearing issue before seeing a hearing care professional.
