'Once lost, hearing doesn't come back': WHO warns on World Hearing Day

1 Read Comments                

Worldwide, some 466 million people have disabling hearing loss, and the WHO estimates that by 2050 that figure will almost double, affecting one in 10 people. The cost of unaddressed hearing loss is believed to be around US$ 750 billion. Many people live with unidentified hearing loss, often failing to realize that they are missing out on certain sounds and words

In a statement released by WHO, Dr. Shelly Chadha, Technical Officer of the organization, said that "once lost, hearing does not come back. Through World Hearing Day, and with the support of this app, we encourage people to Check your hearing! in order to help preserve this valuable gift that helps us to enjoy life." (WHO, March 3, 2019)
