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

NEWS: We have decided to postpone the announcement of the Vision Excellence Awards to November 2020. Thank you for your patience.

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 will celebrate 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 recognises the achievements of individuals during the twenty years of VISION 2020. Many nominees have been sent in by IAPB member organisations during 2020 and reflect the range and scope of VISION 2020’s influence on the sector.
