The global initiative Our Children’s Vision, has hosted dozens of representatives from its international partner base at a meeting in Sri Lanka (5 – 6 February 2018).
The aim of the meeting was to develop a “cohesive and inclusive campaign with partners’ engagement that would drive universal access to eye health for children”.
The meeting brought together leaders in the eye health and development field to scrutinise health integration models and resource mobilisation strategies, and discuss topics ranging from current eye health standards for children to latest research in school health.
Professor Serge Resnikoff, Chair of the Global Advisory Board, Our Children’s Vision, said, “It is critical that meetings like these take place to consolidate ideas and strategies for the Our Children’s Vision campaign. Our partners do amazing work, and have an incredible knowledge base – this is an opportunity for all our partners to learn from one another in an effort to build stronger child eye health programs globally and create a unified voice for change.”
