Sightsavers’ eye health strategy 2013-2018

October 2017

This strategy is guided by Sightsavers’ Strategic Framework 2012 – 2018 and draws on the organisation’s range of technical, research and policy expertise.

It provides a clear vision on how the organisation will move forward over the next five years, where we will invest resources, and how we will work with a variety of stakeholders to achieve one of its ultimate aims and aspirations: Governments will ensure that quality eye care is universally available to all people as an integral part of wider health systems.

To provide the evidence that these ambitious aims are achievable, we will work with partners in selected geographical areas and districts to demonstrate interventions for eye health which are scalable, adaptable and cost effective. We will design and implement these interventions to strengthen and support the health systems, and contribute to the evidence base for policy and advocacy.

We believe that no child should have to stop their education due to reversible blindness and infection. But for Namukolo, this could have been a reality.
