Mongolian Otolaryngology doctors celebrate World Hearing Day every year. This year, the Otolaryngologists at Mongol Japan Hospital planned to organize three events to raise awareness and provide information about hearing loss and its prevention. The first event was about providing information to doctors in other departments about hearing loss, prevention, and the challenges that people with hearing loss face today. We have also discussed how to collaborate to address this invisible disability. The second event was focused on providing information to the public about how to prevent hearing loss and organizing free hearing screenings. A total of over 65 individuals availed the cost-free hearing screening offer. We also distributed promotional materials to raise awareness about hearing loss. The third event aimed to raise awareness among social media users through official sites about the social stigmatization related to hearing loss. We have successfully organized the events as planned.
