There are 1.1 billion people around the world living with the consequences of sight loss because they do not have access to eye care services. These are some of the poorest and most marginalised in society. Without change, this will rise to 1.8 billion people by 2050.The ‘2030 in sight’ sets out our strategic plan for the next decade. It builds on so much great work already done, but recognises there is still much more to do.
We will have to work differently to make sure eyesight receives the global political, health and development priority it needs and deserves. The end of avoidable sight loss is now within our grasp and we need to push harder than ever before to help deliver this ambition.
