Every year on March 3rd, the world comes together to recognise World Hearing Day. It's not just another observance on the calendar; it's a vital global initiative shedding light on an often-overlooked aspect of health hearing. In this blog, we'll delve into the importance of World Hearing Day, its impact on raising awareness, and how various organisations, including The Mandatory Training Group, contribute to this cause.

Understanding World Hearing Day

World Hearing Day serves as a platform to raise awareness about hearing health and advocate for policies and practices that promote ear and hearing care. Here's how different organisations contribute to this global effort:

  • World Health Organisation (WHO) - As the leading global health authority, WHO spearheads coordinating World Hearing Day activities worldwide. It provides valuable resources, guidelines, and advocacy materials to support countries in their efforts to raise awareness about hearing health.
  • Action on Hearing Loss (UK), The Mandatory Training Group, and Other Charities - Organisations like Action on Hearing Loss, The Mandatory Training Group, and the British Tinnitus Association (BTA) play crucial roles in the UK, supporting individuals with hearing loss and raising awareness about hearing health issues. They provide resources, support services, and advocacy efforts to promote better access to hearing healthcare services.
  • National Health Service (NHS) - In the UK, the NHS offers vital support for individuals with hearing loss through various services and initiatives. They often participate in World Hearing Day activities by offering free or discounted hearing screenings and distributing educational materials to the public.

Key facts and statistics

  • According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), around 466 million people worldwide live with disabling hearing loss, and this number is expected to increase to over 900 million by 2050.
  • Hearing loss can affect people of all ages, from infants to the elderly, and can result from a variety of factors including genetics, exposure to loud noise, infections, and ageing.
