Inclusion made easy in eye health programmes

People with disabilities constitute the world’s largest minority group.

This guide, focusing on disability-inclusive practices for strengthening eye care, is a very important resource for all people working in eye health.

It addresses the specific steps needed to ensure people with disabilities have equal access to eye health programs, and also the need to ensure that those with permanent vision loss access wider opportunities.
