The Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT) Department at Al Nahdha Hospital celebrated today (Monday) World Hearing Day, which falls on March 03 each year.
The celebration was held with the presence of Dr. Mazin Al-Khabouri, ENT Senior Consultant, along with a number of school health nurses and staff working in the primary health centers in Muscat Governorate.
The World Hearing Day came this year under the theme: "Ear & Hearing Care for All: Let's make it Reality",
The World Hearing Day aims to promote public health actions for ear and hearing care, stimulate intersectoral partnership for ear and hearing care, raise awareness of hearing loss and care at national and community levels, and encourage behavior change towards healthy EHC practices.
The celebration highlighted the importance of integrating ear and hearing care within primary care.
In addition, the event touched upon several related topics, such as hearing care in Oman, ear infections, types of hearing loss, hearing aid devices, and the school hearing screening programs.
