Western Pacific

The IAPB Western Pacific Region covers 28 diverse countries in the Pacific, Oceania and parts of Asia. The region stretches over a vast area, from China and Mongolia in the north, to New Zealand in the south.

Across the Western Pacific, the implementation of integrated people centred eye care, with a stronger focus on HR, research and existing & emerging eye health issues including myopia, effective cataract coverage and diabetic retinopathy form the core of IAPB strategy towards 2030. This will address the region’s share of the one billion people who are avoidably vision impaired.
