The Report of the 2030 targets on effective coverage of eye care intends to serve as a reference point to commence monitoring progress towards the 2030 global targets that were endorsed by Member States at the 74th World Health Assembly.
This report draws on key results from a comprehensive analysis of population-based eye health surveys and includes estimates of effective cataract surgery coverage (eCSC) and effective refractive error coverage (eREC) at the global level, by WHO region, sex and World Bank income level, and the relative quality gap (that is, the percentage difference between ‘effective coverage’ and ‘coverage’).
It also serves to highlight key gaps in current data and presents suggestions for additional efforts required to advance the monitoring, policies and programmes for increasing the coverage of eye care interventions.
