Vision 2020: The right to sight
The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that without major intervention, the number of people who are blind will increase to 75 million by 2020.
The Fred Hollows Foundation is a partner in the WHO’s VISION 2020 campaign.
VISION 2020 brings together governments, non-government organisations and eye-care professionals to develop and implement sustainable programs that fight the causes of blindness.
By reducing blindness around the world, the campaign will significantly reduce the number of people living in poverty and will also reduce child mortality by tackling the causes of childhood blindness that also cause death, such as measles and vitamin A deficiency.
WHO launched the VISION 2020 campaign in partnership with the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness.
