The Package of Eye Care Interventions (PECI) will be a WHO resource containing evidence-based eye care interventions that can be used by countries to plan (i.e. decide on which interventions to prioritize), budget and integrate eye care interventions at all service delivery platforms. The PECI will support countries to determine the a) workforce competencies, equipment, medicines and consumables necessary, b) assistive technologies needed, and c) costs associated with the implementation of eye care interventions.
The project will be led by the WHO Vision Programme in collaboration with Cochrane Eyes and Vision.
It is anticipated that the PECI will be finalized and available for use in early 2021.
