Application Due February 14, 2019

As part of activities of the recently launched World Hearing Forum, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Coalition for Global Hearing Health (CGHH) invite proposals for WHF-CGHH Small Grants for World Hearing Day 2019.

The World Hearing Day 2019 will be observed on 3 March with the theme “Check Your Hearing”. On this day, WHO will launch the ‘HearWHO App’, a software application to screen for hearing loss using Digits in Noise test methodology that has been widely utilized in other settings. Grant recipients will organize activities to promote healthy hearing that may include:

  • Offering people free hearing checks in the community, preferably with using the new HearWHO App
  • Raising awareness on hearing loss within the population at large
  • Informing policymakers about the importance and means for hearing loss prevention, identification, and management.

To promote and support such actions, WHO and CGHH have launched a small grants scheme. As part of this scheme, partners can apply for a grant of up to USD 750 to cover expenses related to World Hearing Day Activities. A maximum of 15 grants will be provided., based on the decision made by a selection panel.
