Focus on Gender Equity 2022

We can’t remove all the barriers women and girls face, but together we can remove one. It is a fact that women and girls do not enjoy the same eye health opportunities as their male counterparts, which can have a devastating ripple effect. We need to do better, and we will do better.

Focus On Gender Equity

Focus on Gender Equity, throughout the year, shares knowledge, inspiration and ideas from some of the world’s most innovative experts and inserts eye health and Gender Equality onto the agenda of the world’s most pressing development issues.

We know that in many countries ​women cannot, for a myriad of reasons, access services and assistive products with the same frequency as men. Vision loss has far-reaching ​implications, not just for the women affected, but also for their families, communities, and economies. With Focus on Gender Equity, we are highlighting that gender should not determine access to health, education, or future opportunity.

We invite you to focus on Gender Equity.
