WHO lancerer nyt World Hearing Forum

World Health Organization starter nyt forum om hørelse og søger medlemmer. Her er en besked fra WHO Technical Officer Shelly Chadha:

Dear All

In July this year, WHO announced the formation of the World Hearing Forum, which is a global network of stakeholders promoting ear and hearing care worldwide.

The World Hearing Forum (2018-2025) will fill a critical gap by bringing a collective vision to advocacy and collaboration in this field. Through networking and by sharing knowledge, skills and experiences from the field, the World Hearing Forum will galvanize action and facilitate the implementation of the World Health Assembly resolution on prevention of deafness and hearing loss (WHA 70.13)

All governmental and nongovernmental organizations; including disabled people’s organizations/ user groups, charitable/service organizations, professional societies, parent groups, regional fora (with defined structure), private sector entities including international business associations, philanthropic foundations and academic institutions, that are active in the field of ear and hearing care, are invited to apply for membership of the Forum.

Details about the forum and its membership criteria, responsibilities and process can be accessed here

Applications can be made online here

With best wishes for the end of 2018 and a great start to 2019,

WHO team for ear and hearing care
