IAPB Membership

“Your organisation is about to embark on an important step towards ending preventable blindness. In becoming an IAPB member you are joining the largest global eye health alliance. There are currently 150 members of IAPB and we are growing annually. There are opportunities for all members to collaborate across much of our work, be it through the member-led workgroups, or via celebrating World Sight Day.”

Bob McMullan, President of IAPB

IAPB General Assemblies bring together over 1,000 eye health delegates every four years.
