The nAMD Barometer Leadership Coalition

The nAMD Barometer Leadership Coalition is an international group of experts in the field of retinal disease, vision and diabetes care, and ageing. It was established in 2018 to develop evidence-based solutions for the optimal management of nAMD.

The Leadership Coalition aims to overcome barriers facing patient adherence to and persistence with recommended anti-VEGF treatment by developing evidence-based interventions to optimise care and ultimately improve long-term patient outcomes.

The Barometer Programme is managed by clinical leaders in ophthalmology as well as representatives from the International Federation on Ageing (IFA), International Agency for Prevention of Blindness (IAPB), International Diabetes Federation (IDF) and Bayer. The activities of the Barometer Programme are funded and facilitated by Bayer where the scientists, and representatives from IFA, IAPB and IDF, retain decision authority to the scope, methods, analysis of findings and dissemination of the outputs of the Barometer Programme.
