As with every year we have a pack of material outlining what World Sight Day is, the key messages and media guidelines. You can download them below.
World Sight Day (WSD) is an international day of awareness, held annually on the second Thursday of October to focus attention on the global issue of avoidable blindness and visual impairment. The theme of World Sight Day 2017 (WSD2017) is: Universal Eye Health.
The theme is in keeping with the WHO’s Action Plan 2014-2019 and will be used for the next couple of years as a rolling theme.
Each year, however, we will focus on a ‘Call to Action’, and for 2017 it is:
Make Vision Count
