World Hearing Day 2018: raising awareness around the globe
World Hearing Day is all about prevention, detection and treatment.
World Hearing Day is on Saturday March 3.
This year’s theme is “Hear the future”.
World Hearing Day 2018 will draw attention to the anticipated increase in the number of people with hearing loss around the world in the coming decades.
It will focus on preventive strategies to stem the rise and outline steps to ensure access to the necessary rehabilitation services and communication tools and products for people with hearing loss.
What should you do to preserve your hearing?
- Protect your hearing by using earplugs or ear muffs
- Limit your exposure to loud sounds and environments
- Lower the volume on your devices
- Have your hearing checked regularly by a qualified hearing care professional
