People with disabilities constitute the world’s largest minority group. As such, this ‘guide’ is a very important resource for all people working in eye health. It addresses the specific steps needed to ensure people with disabilities have equal access to eye health programs, and also the need to ensure that those with permanent vision loss access wider opportunities.
This guide seeks to address two important questions facing all eye care personnel, namely:
How to make eye care services accessible and inclusive for people with disabilities.
How to assist people with permanent vision loss whose sight cannot be restored.
This guidance aims to facilitate the monitoring of both eye and ear care services through presenting a set of core facility indicators along with considerations for analysis and use of routine health information
