World Hearing Day 2021 will mark the launch of the first-ever World Report on Hearing

World Hearing Day, March 3, 2021. Hearing care for all. Screen, rehabilitate, communicate.

World Hearing Day 2021 and the World Report on Hearing present a global call to action to address hearing loss and ear diseases throughout the lifetime.

The World Health Organization (WHO) brought together experts from around the world, including the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, for contributions to this first-ever report.

For World Hearing Day 2021, we want to remind people that:
  • Good hearing and communication are important at all stages of life.
  • Hearing loss (and related ear diseases) can be avoided through preventative actions such as: protection against loud sounds; good ear care practices and immunization.
  • Hearing loss (and related ear diseases) can be addressed when identified in a timely manner and appropriate care sought.
  • People at risk of hearing loss should check their hearing regularly.
  • People having hearing loss (or related ear diseases) should seek care from a health care provider
