Vision Excellence Awards

The Vision Excellence awards will recognise outstanding contributions to advocacy, innovation, programme implementation, institution-building and disease control during the twenty years of VISION 2020.

The Awards

2020 marks the end of VISION 2020: The Right to Sight – a global initiative launched in 1999.

The VISION 2020: The Right to Sight global initiative sought to promote: “A world in which nobody is needlessly visually impaired, where those with unavoidable vision loss can achieve their full potential.” The Vision Excellence awards will recognise the people who have significantly contributed towards its goals and outcomes. These pages bring together and celebrate individuals whose vision, drive, commitment and quality of work contributed to successful outcomes and continued learning from the VISION 2020 agenda.

IAPB, with the support of its member organisations, celebrates individuals whose vision, drive, commitment and quality of work contributed to the successful outcomes and continued learning from the VISION 2020 agenda with our Vision Excellence Awards.

The awards recognise the achievements of individuals during the twenty years of VISION 2020. We have over a hundred nominations from IAPB member organisations and the nominees reflect the range and scope of VISION 2020’s influence on the sector. See all the awardees through the links below.
