VISION 2020: The Right to Sight, a joint programme of IAPB and WHO, is a global initiative to eliminate avoidable blindness. In order to provide an impetus to this programme, IAPB seeks support from Individuals, NGOs, Institutions, Foundations and Ophthalmic Societies around the world, working in the field of eye care and blindness prevention.
IAPB is in the midst of a membership drive. VISION 2020 is quickly gathering momentum and around the globe countries are developing and implementing blindness prevention programmes. We have barely 10 years to meet our goal of controlling avoidable blindness across the world. To achieve our goals we must all work together. There is no better way of fostering cooperation than by becoming a member of IAPB.
In the past two years IAPB has raised significant funding from several sources who are excited about contributing to a truly global effort. None of this would have happened if a number of NGOs did not make a commitment in the early days of VISION 2020. Their efforts are starting to pay off and now we can do even better with more members.
