World Hearing Day 2022

Today is World Hearing Day! This annual World Health Organisation (WHO) event aims to raise awareness on how to prevent deafness and hearing loss and promote ear and hearing care across the world.

Each year, WHO decides the theme and develops evidence-based advocacy materials such as brochures, flyers, posters, banners, infographics and presentations, among others.

These materials are shared with partners in government and civil society around the world as well as WHO regional and country offices.

The 2022 theme is ‘To hear for life, listen with care’. This follows the 2021 WHO World report on hearing that highlighted the increasing number of people living with and at risk of hearing loss. It highlighted noise control as one of the seven key H.E.A.R.I.N.G. interventions and stressed the importance of mitigating exposure to loud sounds.
