Diagram showing all themes featured in the Knowledge Hub, classified under Elevate, Integrate and Activate.

We have created the Knowledge Hub around the three pillars of the 2030 In Sight strategy: Elevate, Integrate, and Activate.

The Knowledge Hub enables easy access to expertise and experience across the network to help:

  • elevate eye health into the Sustainable Development Goals
  • integrate eye health into broader health systems, and
  • activate markets necessary for eye health and empower individuals to make eye health a priority.

Please explore the following sections to learn more about key topics forming part of each pillar, or you can view all topics by selecting the following button.

Elevate

The Elevate pillar of the 2030 In Sight strategy calls us to embed vision as a fundamental, economic, social and development issue. How can we can do this?

  • Unlock political will and financing.
  • Set new targets for eye health and hold government to account for reaching them.
  • Leverage school and education settings.
  • Call on employers to support eye health in workplaces.
  • Advocate and demonstrate good practice across the full Sustainable Development framework.

Integrate

Everyone should have access to good quality eye health services. But this will only happen if there is greater integration of eye health in wider health care systems. How can we can achieve this?

  • Push for inclusion in Universal Health Coverage.
  • Deliver integrated people-centred eye care.
  • Train and develop a diverse and resilient workforce.
  • Embrace technological solutions.

Activate

Eye health is a universal issue and we must activate universal demand by driving patient, consumer and market change. How can we can do this?

  • Campaign on a new level.
  • Tackle negative stereotyping.
  • Build public-private partnerships.
  • Create the right regulatory environment.
