Sightsavers’ eye health strategy summary 2013-2018

October 2017

Sightsavers’ vision is of a world where no one is blind from avoidable causes and where visually impaired people participate equally in society.

We are an international organization working with partners in developing countries to eliminate avoidable blindness and promote equality of opportunity for people with disabilities.

Sightsavers’ ultimate strategic aim is for governments to ensure that good quality eye care is available to all people as an integral part of wider health systems. We believe that strong health systems aligned to clear government policy are essential to create an environment for the elimination of avoidable blindness.
