As part of World Hearing Day, the World Health Organization conducts a range of educational activities for government representatives and civil society around the world, including the development and dissemination of educational materials in UN six official languages (Arabic, Chinese, Spanish, French, Russian and English), and provides a toolkit for planning of the event for any person or organization interested in celebrating World Hearing Day.
World Hearing Day is organized annually at the WHO headquarters in Geneva. In recent years, the World Hearing Day campaign has spread like a fire around the world. In 2019 it was organized in 80 countries around the world. To maintain this trend, the World Health Organization's agenda calls on all member states and other partner agencies to increase public awareness and political commitment and stimulate action on global hearing protection.
