Advocate

We advocate for the policies and resources needed to achieve universal access to eye health.

We work with our members, governments, international and national health organisations, NGOs, and other key stakeholders in over 100 countries around the world to raise awareness about global challenges in avoidable blindness and visual impairment.

Our advocacy is targeted, evidence-based, and builds on the work of all our members. We provide a platform for collaboration and joint advocacy as we know that, we can only tackle the barriers to delivering eye care for all by building effective multi-sector partnerships.

We are recognised as a global leader on eye health advocacy, coordinating major campaigns such as World Sight Day (WSD) and leading initiatives like the UN Friends of Vision group and Vision for the Commonwealth.
