The IAPB leads international efforts to prevent blindness. Our vision is a world in which everyone has access to the best possible standard of eye health; where no one is needlessly visually impaired; and where those with irreparable vision loss achieve their full potential.

This will involve working on complex eye health strategies with a range of high profile stakeholders including the WHO, IAPB member organizations and government bodies. You will also have the opportunity to identify and develop relevant fundraising activities to support the ongoing work we do.

Significant experience in the international development or public heath arena, with explicit experience of eye heath systems ideally within the region, is vital to this role.  Excellent relationship management skills are also important as building effective collaborations with individuals at all levels and from varied cultures is key to the position.
