Title: World Hearing Day Barbados 2023


The World Hearing Day Barbados 2023 was a week-long event that concluded with a live, interactive session on ear and hearing health. It successfully reached 163,324 people through various platforms such as media interviews, national news features, and social media activism. The event not only raised awareness but also led to the formation of new partnerships for ongoing promotion of ear and hearing care. These partnerships were a result of the public’s demand for complementary monthly hearing tests and screenings. All attendees received promotional materials and a training manual from the World Health Organization.
