Today is World Hearing Day, and along with the World Report on Hearing, they present a global call for action to address hearing loss and ear diseases across the life course.

This years theme for World Hearing Day is:

Hearing care for ALL! Screen. Rehabilitate. Communicate

As presented by the World Health Organization, key messages of World Hearing Day 2021 target:

  • Integrate person-centered ear and hearing care within national health plans for universal health coverage.
