Strengthening eye health systems and the quality of eye care across the Commonwealth.
Good quality eye care is a scarce resource for millions of people across the globe, including in many Commonwealth countries. 90% of the world’s visually impaired people live in developing countries, with little or no access to eye care.
What are we doing about it?
The Trust established the Commonwealth Eye Health Consortium, to tap into expertise that exists across the Commonwealth and deliver a programme of fellowships research and technology to strengthen eye care throughout the Commonwealth. Its aim is to bring quality eye care to all who need it.
