Other Suggestions:

World Hearing forum should identify individuals or organizations around the world especially in developing countries where there is neglect of ear and hearing care and limited resources and make them a formidable partner where their activities will consistently be supported and they will be supported and tutored by members of whf who has already made a huge impact and successful in their regions. This will help a lot in getting the work done in Africa especially and activities on ear and hearing care and continuous engagement with policy makers will henceforth not be limited to the 3rd of march but will be enhanced only at the world celebration on 3rd of march of every year. This will also encourage committed partners to come
