World Hearing Day 2022 Announcement

Posted in News

World Health Organization has announced

“The next World Hearing Day will be observed on 3 March 2022 with the theme ‘To hear for life, listen with care’. 

Through this theme, WHO will focus on the importance of safe listening as a means of maintaining good hearing across the life course as recommended in the World report on hearing. 
The key messages for WHD 2022 are:
     * It is possible to have good hearing across the life course through ear and hearing care​
     * Many common causes of hearing loss can be prevented, including hearing loss caused by exposure to loud sounds​
     * ‘Safe listening’ can mitigate the risk of hearing loss associated with recreational sound exposure​
     * WHO calls upon governments, industry partners and civil society to raise awareness for and implement evidence-based standards that promote safe listening
 The World Hearing Day 2022 will mark the launch of:
     * The ‘Global standard for safe listening entertainment venues​ and events’
     * A SafeListening handbook​, and
     * A media toolkit for journalists
 We hope that the World Hearing Day 2022 will be a massive call to action. All sectors can demonstrate their leadership by making this year’s event the largest one the country has ever seen.”
