Word Hearing Day

The World Health Organization (WHO) World Hearing Day is an annual advocacy event held on 3 March each year to raise awareness on how to prevent hearing loss and promote ear and hearing care across the world. It has been organized since 2007 and was first introduced in Beijing, China.

Since 2013, EFHOH in co-operation with EHIMA and AEA has annually organized a Lunch Debate in the European Parliament especially aimed at MEPs and national policymakers in Europe. The event has been hosted by MEPs such as Helga Stevens (Belgium), Ádám Kósa (Hungary), and Roberta Metsola (Malta).
