      Vision 2020
      What is VISION 2020 ?
      VISION 2020 is the global initiative for the elimination of avoidable blindness, a joint programme of the World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB) with an international membership of NGOs, professional associations, eye care institutions and corporations.

      The many successes of VISION 2020: The Right to Sight have been achieved through a unique, cross-sector collaboration, which enables public, private and non-profit interests to work together, helping people to see, all over the world.

      VISION 2020 Mission, Goals, Aims and Objectives
      MISSION
      To eliminate the main causes of avoidable blindness by the year 2020 by facilitating the planning, development and implementation of sustainable national eye care programmes based on the three core strategies of disease control, human resource development and infrastructure and technology, incorporating the principles of primary health care. This will be achieved by mobilising the will and passion for action through advocacy and by mobilising resources.

      VISION
      A world in which no one is needlessly blind and where those with unavoidable vision loss can achieve their full potential.

      The overall aim is to eliminate the main causes of avoidable blindness and to prevent the projected doubling of avoidable vision impairment between 1990 and 2020. From the outset, it has been clear that the goal of eliminating avoidable blindness would best be achieved by integrating an equitable, sustainable, comprehensive eye-care system into every national health system. The VISION 2020 initiative is intended to strengthen national health-care systems and facilitate national capacity-building.

      OBJECTIVES
      • Increase awareness, within key audiences, of the causes of avoidable blindness and the solutions to the problem;
      • Advocate for and secure the necessary resources to increase prevention and treatment activities; and
      • Facilitate the planning, development and implementation of national VISION 2020 programmes in all countries.

      National programmes have three main elements: cost-effective disease control, human resource development and infrastructure and technology.

      VISION 2020 is built on a foundation of community participation. Overarching issues, such as equity, quality of services and visual outcomes, are addressed as part of national programmes.
