World Health OrganizationDr Fabrizio D’Esposito has this week started as Technical Advisor to WHO West Pacific Regional Office. This short term consultancy is to evaluate the eye health programmes in the region and to contribute to the eye health section of the new regional NCD framework.

IAPB is delighted that WHO has continued to support this position, a recognition of Dr Andreas Mueller’s work over the past two years. Many of you will know ‘Fab’ from his work at the Fred Hollows Foundation, Australia (where he will still spend 50% of his time) or from his role as Chair of the Diabetic Retinopathy Working Group and join with us in welcoming him to this role.
