Every four years IAPB holds its General Assembly, landmark events discussing progress in the fight against avoidable blindness and visual impairment.
Being a host country of an IAPB’s General Assembly is more than simply providing an accessible location and the right infrastructure (though essential these requirements are). Hosting an Assembly is about partnerships, joint-up work as well as opportunities for legacy.
IAPB is now inviting interested parties who would like to host the 2020 11th General Assembly in their city to submit a proposal.
