World Hearing Day 2018

5 Mar

THE World Hearing Day was celebrated in the country by the Frank Hilton Organisation.

Organisation CEO Sureni Perera said they were trying to promote knowledge and awareness of hearing and ear health.

"This is a big problem in any part of the world. Our mandate is on early detection and intervention," Ms Perera said. 

"We have an otorhinolaryngology department and because of this, we want to make the general public aware that early prevention and detection is much better at an early age.

"We have an ear, nose, throat (ENT) surgeons of two people in the country. We also have our team here doing basic screenings."

World Hearing Day is celebrated every year on March 3 to raise awareness on how to prevent hearing loss and promote ear disease care across the world.
