Every year, World Hearing Day is held on March 3 to raise awareness on how to prevent deafness and hearing loss and promote ear and hearing care across the world. The special day emphasizes the importance of early detection and intervention in preventing hearing loss and promoting ear health. This international initiative aims to mobilize governments, healthcare professionals, and individuals to take action towards reducing the prevalence of hearing loss. Each year, the WHO decides the theme for this day. At its headquarters in Geneva, WHO organizes an annual World Hearing Day event. The first event was held in 2015. Before this, the day was known as International Ear Care Day. World Hearing Day 2024: Quotes, Messages and Images To Share and Amplify Awareness for Ear Health and Wellness.

According to WHO, over 80% of ear and hearing care needs remain unmet globally. Hence, there needs to be a change in mindsets related to ear and hearing care as it is crucial to improving access and mitigating the cost of unaddressed hearing loss. World Hearing Day 2024 will focus on overcoming the challenges posed by societal misperceptions and stigmatizing mindsets through awareness-raising and information-sharing targeted at the public and healthcare providers. Why Do We Celebrate World Hearing Day?
