World Hearing Day 2022

On World Hearing Day 2022, WHO will focus on the importance of safe listening as a means of maintaining good hearing across the life course.

In 2021, WHO launched the World report on hearing that highlighted the increasing number of people living with and at risk of hearing loss. It highlighted noise control as one of the seven key H.E.A.R.I.N.G. interventions and stressed the importance of mitigating exposure to loud sounds.
