Join a powerful, unprecedented alliance for better eye health for all.Join IAPB
School health programs are a unique opportunity to reach millions of children with eye health services.
Numerous NGOs, across the globe, have successfully established great school eye-health programmes that are delivering eye care to thousands of children every year. The IAPB School Eye Health Work group is learning from these successes and strategizing how to do more – finding solutions to reach more children, raise a higher level of awareness, and educate children and their parents about the importance of eye health.
The School Eye Health Work Group are focussing on these 8 areas:
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.
Membership of the School Eye Health Work Group is open to all IAPB members engaged in School Eye Health.
All Work Group members are expected to actively contribute their expertise and knowledge to ensure the group meets its stated objectives.
