World Sight Day 2014 | Posted on October 9, 2014 by Martinb PR

Today is IAPB’s World Sight Day!

The day is meant to help reduce avoidable blindness by 25%, by 2019. IAPB identifies the following areas for intervention that are needed to usher in Universal Eye Health. Governments must:

  • Collect better evidence on the magnitude and prevalence of blindness prevention
  • Train more eye care professionals
  • Provide comprehensive eye care services and integrate them into existing health provision/systems
  • Identify and eliminate social and economic obstacles, particularly for the poor and the marginalized.
