  • Description:
    World Hearing Day is March 3, 2020. This year’s theme is “Don’t Let Hearing Loss Limit You. Hearing for Life.”

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is again partnering with the World Health Organization (WHO) to help support and promote World Hearing Day.

    This year, World Hearing Day aims to:

    • Promote public health actions for ear and hearing care.

    • Stimulate partnerships for ear and hearing care.

    • Raise awareness on hearing loss and care at both national and community levels.

    • Encourage behavior change.

    Don't let hearing loss limit you. Hearing for life. World Hearing Day March 3, 2020

    World Hearing Day is the ideal opportunity to spread the word and raise the profile of ear and hearing care as part of a national health agenda.

    One of the causes of hearing loss is recreational noise, and it is preventable. According to WHO, nearly 50% of people aged 12-35 years – or 1.1 billion young people – are at risk of hearing loss due to prolonged and excessive exposure to loud sounds. These sounds include music they hear through personal listening devices. Once they lose their hearing, it won’t come back.
