IAPB Africa comprises over 30 member agencies working in almost every country in South-Saharan Africa (SSA). Our ambition is to influence change in eye health work force planning in SSA by aligning our efforts with health system strengthening and advocating for the full implementation of the 2014-2019 WHO Action Plan for the Prevention of Avoidable Blindness to achieve Universal Coverage.
To achieve our vision we have established a 10 year time frame, divided into two, 5 year, implementation phases and supported by a rolling set of priorities. This strategy lays out our immediate objectives for the first 5 years.
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).
