In these two days, representatives of institutions, doctors, researchers, associations, health professionals, companies in the sector, journalists and testimonials will compete in a long media marathon, Hear-a-thon, to promote a real cultural revolution, which finally places hearing problems at the center of the political and health debate.

Hear-a-thon: a major online event to celebrate World Hearing Day simultaneously with over 100 countries and to formalize the launch of the World Report on Hearing, developed by the World Hearing Forum, organization wanted by the WHO precisely to raise attention to the worrying increase in hearing disorders in the world and which also includes Udito Italia Onlus. The Hear-a-thon event will be live streaming and enhanced by an online platform that will gather all the participants.

Udito Italia Onlus, partner of the World Hearing Forum (WHF) has accepted the mandate of the WHO to set up a New Hearing Alliance focused on prevention policies.
