This awareness campaign is aimed at the Haitian population in general and has been carried out through television, radio, and online broadcast; and also through presentations in schools, universities, and churches. This campaign covered the prevention of hearing lost,the safe listening, the stigmatisation of people with hearing loss and ear diseases.
