The International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB) is the global umbrella body for organisations working towards the elimination of avoidable blindness and visual impairment.

IAPB membership brings together organisations to build a powerful voice for eye health, develop best practices through sharing and learning, open up new partnership opportunities and enhance our collective reach and impact.

We believe that together we have far greater chances of influencing change than any one organisation alone.

With a growing membership of over 125 members across the globe comprising non-governmental organisations (NGOs), professional bodies, educational and research institutions and major hospitals, IAPB is the leading hub for all those working for a world in which no one is needlessly blind or visually impaired and where those with unavoidable vision loss can achieve their full potential.

Standard IAPB membership is open to non-profit distributing organisations only. If you represent a commercial corporation interested in partnering with IAPB, please write to us.
