ONICI erkend als lid van
het WHO World Hearing Forum
Op 17 februari 2022 ontvingen wij van de Wereld GezondheidsOrganisatie (WHO) het fantastische nieuws dat ONICI aanvaard wordt als lid van het WHO World Hearing Forum en dit voor de periode van 2022 t/m 2024. We denken dat we hiermee de enige organisatie zijn van de Benelux die deze uitzonderlijke erkenning te beurt valt. Er zetelen wel nog enkele Belgen en Nederlands in het World Hearing Forum, maar dan voor een buitenlandse of internationale organisatie.
Wij zijn dus ontzettend blij en vereerd dat wij deze erkenning mochten ontvangen en willen hier graag de inhoud van de welkomstbrief even metu delen:
