Delivering the “Alan Johns Memorial Lecture”, Prof Serge Resnikoff highlighted the importance of Universal Health Coverage (UHC), and of ensuring eye care is part of the ‘package’ of services provided by governments under their UHC initiatives.
Alan Johns was a Past-President of IAPB and also its first Secretary General. He was also the Executive Director of Sightsavers. IAPB instituted the Alan Johns Lecture in his memory at the 6th General Assembly in Beijing, China in 1999. Previous speakers include Prof Al Sommer, Mr Christopher Friend and Dr Zulma Ortiz.
