Human Resources for Eye Health Work Group

Leading on key activities which support human resource development.


IAPB established a committee in 2003 to look into how best IAPB and its members could coordinate efforts to address this problem more effectively.

The HReH committee has recently reviewed its terms of reference and has evolved into a work group with a focussed approach reflecting the areas of human resources development where it is believed it can add value.

Activities / priorities

The two priority areas the group will be concentrating their efforts around are:

  • Training eye care teams – in collaboration with other stakeholders like the International Council of Ophthalmology (ICO) – “Scaling up numbers”;
  • Advocacy with regions and countries to focus on Human Resource Development for eye health.


The Work Group will meet by teleconference at least twice a year, or face to face where possible. Opportunities for face-to-face meetings, where possible, will be sought around other events that may already see the attendance of the Work Group members.

All Work Group members are expected to actively contribute their expertise and knowledge to ensure the group meets its stated objectives.
