There are 1.1 billion people around the world living with the consequences of sight loss because they do not have access to eye care services.
These are some of the poorest and most marginalised in society.
Without change, this will rise to 1.8 billion people by 2050.
2030 IN SIGHT is the sector’s strategic plan for the next decade. A call to action to embed vision as a fundamental, economic, social and development issue, incorporate eye health in wider health care systems and drive patient, consumer and market change. All of which are fundamental to achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
The end of avoidable sight loss is now within our grasp and 2030 IN SIGHT outlines how we can push harder than ever before to deliver on this ambition.
2030 IN SIGHT builds on so much great work already done, but recognises that the challenge has changed and we have to work differently to make sure eyesight receives the political, health and development priority it needs and deserves.
Together, we need to:
- ELEVATE vision as a fundamental economic, social and development issue.
- INTEGRATE eye health in wider health care systems.
- ACTIVATE patient, consumer and market change.
