Our Children’s Vision are looking for partners to join them in the following activities:
- get eye care services to children in areas of need,
- raise awareness of the importance of eye health services for children,
- educate communities, parents and children about healthy eyes,
- lobby governments to include child eye health in health plans and policy, and
- mobilise funds.
“We are potentially facing the biggest public health challenge of our generation,” said Professor Kovin Naidoo, CEO, Brien Holden Vision Institute and Campaign Director for Our Children’s Vision. “This trend can be slowed down through preventative or corrective care, but only if a child is reached while their eyes are still developing. An effective eye health program in schools would have an unprecedented impact. Our Children’s Vision is a global campaign designed to make this impact a reality.”
