World Hearing Day 2023 on March 3rd will highlight the importance of integrating ear and hearing care within primary care, as an essential component of universal health coverage
According to the World Health Organization:
- Ear and hearing problems are among the most common problems encountered in the community.
- Over 60% of these can be identified and addressed at the primary level of care.
- Integration of ear and hearing care into primary care services is possible through training and capacity building at this level.
- Such integration will benefit people and help countries move towards the goal of universal health coverage.
