Gender equality is one of the main principles of the work carried out by Eyes of the World. Faced with the lack of data about gender roles’ effect on eye healthcare for women in Inhambane (Mozambique), Eyes of the World decided to carry out a gender diagnosis. Our goal has been to identify the hindrances that prevent Mozambican women and girls from benefiting from ophthalmological services. We also aim to set an alternative for improvement.
The Guide outlines strategies and approaches proposed by WHO that provide practical, step-by-step support to Member States in the planning and implementation of integrated people-centred eye care (IPEC).
