Other Suggestions:

Report sharing time could be extended as we are celebrating it more than a week programme. If possible some additional pamphlets in regional languages for rural and undeveloped area may be designed. Fund may be provided to reach non- reachable areas to make them aware, get them screened and most probably make the World Hearing Day as successful as the National Days celebrated in all over the Globe countries. Everyone should be aware and should be careful and make others to sensitize.
