Will you be part of the worldwide campaign to end avoidable blindness by 2020?
Right now a new Action Plan is being developed by The World Health Organization to set out the work needed to eliminate avoidable blindness by 2020.
The Action Plan needs engagement and input from Member States and non-government organisations across the globe.
All Member States are encouraged to participate in the development of the Action Plan and to intensify their efforts to achieve the goal of eliminating avoidable blindness.
The Fred Hollows Foundation and Sightsavers have produced a brochure (available in different languages – see below) and a YouTube video (above) to help spread the word about ending avoidable blindness by 2020.
The Fred Hollows Foundation, together with the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB) and the Australian Government’s Department of Health and Ageing have produced a background document Eye Health: Building a vision for health systems and partnerships.
Please help spread the word by sharing these materials.
