CIICA AT THE WORLD HEARING FORUM, WHO, GENEVA
CIICA is delighted to be a member of the World Hearing Forum and to be able to attend the second World Hearing Forum meeting and the Stakeholders meeting. A busy three days in Geneva at WHO but it was great to meet up with all the inspiring people from across the globe who are moving on advocacy for Ear and Hearing. We all said a huge thank you to the first Steering Committee who have done an amazing job, especially in the Pandemic, with so much achieved.
Ruth Warick, with Peter Thorne, and Sue Archbold, with Moses Sarwadda, lead the two new work streams for the new Steering Committee and we explored how we can take these ahead, over the next few years.
Sue Archbold, Leo De Raeve, Brian Lamb, Ruth Warick, Teresa Amat, and Paige Stringer from CIICA were there and it was good to be able to spread the work of CIICA and to learn from others. Brian Lamb is seen arguing for adult hearing screening at the Round Table discussion.
World Hearing Day is on 3 March each year, and in 2024 the theme will be Changing Mindsets: Let’s make Ear and Hearing Care a Reality for All. New resources will soon be available to share – and for planning your exciting activities.
