Organization: Starkey Hearing Foundation

Project title: World Hearing Day

Regions: Gambia

Outline of the event:

It’s true, there’s a special day or week for most health issues these days. But for me, World Hearing Day and Hearing Awareness Week (1-7 March), have always been a chance to shine a light on a very common issue affecting thousands of people around the world.

World Hearing Day is held on 3 March each year. Its aim is to raise awareness on how to prevent hearing loss and to promote ear and hearing care across the world.

It coincides with Hearing Awareness Week in the Gambia
