Organization: Center of Hearing and Speech MEDINCUS

Region: Poland

Title: Ear and hearing care for all! Let’s avoid hearing loss problems


The Center of Hearing and Speech MEDINCUS in Poland put emphasis on increasing ear and hearing problems and helped people to identify them and get proper aid. We organized large-scale free hearing screening in 8 mainly cities in Poland (Toruń, Konin, Częstochowa, Rzeszów, Opole, Kraków, Szczecin, Radom). Our free hearing tests were made on the World Hearing Day, but also during the whole month (March) in 4 cities. That enabled hundreds of people to check their hearing.
A lot of participants of our action could have had also free appointment with audiophonologist, appointment with hearing aid technician and auditory processing disorders tests (for children).
We arranged interviews with our otolaryngologists and prepared press release, which were publicized in about 50 local and nation-wide media (press, radio, TV, websites). We also set the article about WHD and our actions on our website, SoM channels and we used WHO materials.
