The Departmental Secretariat of Health invites the community to join in the proposal of the WHO / PAHO and the Ministry of Health and Social Protection to commemorate the «International Day of Hearing», with the purpose of raising awareness of the actions and measures that must be taken to prevent preventable hearing and hearing damage; in the same way, it is designed at raising awareness

Five strategies are promoted:
1. Hygiene, care and warning signs to avoid hearing damage.
2. Adoption of protective behaviors and prevention.
3. Promotion of the assessment of auditory acuity and otological care.
4. Induction of demand and early detection of otological and auditory
disorders, especially in early childhood
5. Campaigns for the control, management and reduction of noise, industrial, environmental and recreational of greater exposure and in different environments.

Base on the above, there will be a socialization event on the guidelines for auditory care on Friday March 1st at the Clarence Lynd Memorial Hospital auditorium at 9:00 a.m. The event is open to the entire community.


It is the healthy effective capacity of the human being to hear, linked to the function of communicating through language; this capacity depends on the structures and
physiology of the hearing organ, the degree of maturation of the individual and the sociocultural environment in which it develops. «Hearing» and «communicating,»constitute a biopsychosocial integrity that cannot be fragmented.

The result of this neurophysiological activity allows interindividual communication through the materialization of multimodal signs of a language according to the convention of a
linguistic community.
