Organization: Belgian National Institute for Health and Disability Insurance (NIHDI – RIZIV – INAMI)

Project title: Hearing Loss is Never Normal

Regions: Belgium

Outline of the event:

On the 3rd of March 2023 for World Hearing Day, the Belgian NIHDI encourages general practitioners to discuss hearing loss with their patients.
General practitioners know best the consequences of hearing loss for their patients.
These consequences exist both on a social level and on general health and well-being.
Some possible consequences are less known, such as burnout, dementia and depression.

The NIHDI and the Agreement Committee for Hearing Care therefore take this initiative to prevent these consequences for patients and provide information to general practitioners to recognize hearing loss, discuss it and refer patients. They do this in the form of an awareness campaign.

There will be a press-release and a dedicated webpage on the site of the NIHDI (RIZIV/INAMI) which will be released on the 3rd of March 2023
