World Hearing Day 2018: Hear the future

Posted on Feb 21, 2018

Every year, the World Health Organisation (WHO) has held World Hearing Day to highlight important issues surrounding ear health. The first such initiative in 2007, was originally known as International Ear Care Day, and the event continues to bring attention to relevant issues such as the social and economic price of unaddressed hearing loss.

Future sounds

Held on March 3, the theme of World Hearing Day 2018 is 'Hear the Future', and the advocacy event will highlight the projected increase in cases of hearing loss globally, as well as preventative measures to quell the rise. Key issues that will be addressed include the increase in cases of hearing loss around the world and the preventative actions that can be implemented to stem the rise.

Go Bananas for your Hearing Health!

In conjunction with Hearing Awareness Week and World Hearing Day, we are hosting a number of  'Go Bananas' events as part of the Campaign for Better Hearing launch which we are sponsoring. With high levels of potassium, bananas are a naturally delicious way to help protect against age-related ear issues.

The event will highlight the projected increase in cases of hearing loss, as well as measures to quell the rise.

Increased levels of potassium can contribute to improving the fluid balance of minerals within the inner ear1, so make sure you incorporate one or two into your day! As part of our drive, staff members will be giving out bananas, and from February 26, we'll also be offering hearing screens at no cost to people over the age of 60.
