Megan McCoy Address CoM 2017

Megan McCoy from WHO addresses delegates about plans for the World Report on Vision – CoM 2017

“The capability that IAPB gives us to connect with other people in eye health, we’re connecting with all of ophthalmology but [also] NGOs, the other professionals, the other groups that are involved, it’s just a great opportunity both to be in meetings but also sit down and talk. The specific opportunities that are most critical to us are the board meeting, the council meeting and the General Assembly.”

William FelchCEO, International Council of Ophthalmology
