Press Release, February 28, 2018
Hearing care and hearing aids keep you independent!
Good news on World Hearing Day: If you have a hearing loss and use hearing aids, you have a much
higher chance of keeping your independence.
March 3rd is World Hearing Day and together with the World Health Organization (WHO) the undersigned
organisations make the European public aware of why hearing loss should be treated early and adequately.
Today, 52 million persons in Europe live with a hearing loss. This number will increase, mainly because we
are living longer than previous generations. Untreated hearing loss has a negative effect on your personal
life, for example, reduced social activity and the risk of becoming more dependent on others.
