IAPB is an alliance of over 140 members and membership bodies. Members include; NGOs, charitable eye hospitals, universities, research centres and training institutions from all over the world. Since 1975 we have been striving towards our vision of a world in which everyone has access to the best possible standard of eye health; where no one is needlessly visually impaired; and where those with irreparable vision loss achieve their full potential.

IAPB’s mission is to achieve universal access to eye health through collaborating with our members to maximise eye health care coverage at global and country level as well as promoting knowledge and awareness of the eye health sector.

“We couldn’t find a better partner in IAPB who knows everybody in this eye health world and introduce us to this network of experts to help us find the right local partners, right international partners, to advise on the issues we should invest in, to make the best impact in eye health.”
