Vision 2020 Australia’s advocacy in an election year

Director - Global Partnerships and Advocacy
Organisation: The Fred Hollows Foundation

Last month Vision 2020 Australia hosted a Parliamentary Friends Group for Eye Health and Vision Care dinner in Canberra. This group commenced in 2007, providing an opportunity for our members to directly engage Federal parliamentarians and bring eye health and vision care issues to their attention. Over the past nine years, the Parliamentary Friends Group has flourished with strong engagement from a cross-section of Australian parliamentarians, their advisers and government officials.
