23 July 2021 marks the historic day when all 193 countries of the United Nations unanimously adopted the first ever resolution on vision designed to tackle preventable sight loss.
In order to better understand the process, implications and find ways to participate in this movement , I had an opportunity to sit across and chat with Dr. Jude Stern, Head Of Knowledge Management at International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB) and Dr. Jamie Anderson, from OneSight. Both the organizations are an integral part of the resolution and its future plans.
In this conversation we chat about;
How did vision come into the forefront of health care
Role of global organizations and ambassadors throughout the 5year long journey
Learn how to contribute and participate towards the mission to provide vision care to 1Billion people around the world beyond your clinic.
Understand how together we aim for Vision for Everyone by Accelerating Action to Achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG)
Learn more about the social media campaign #LoveYourEyes for the world sight day and how you can make it even more special & much more
Along with all the information, learn more about the fun side of these incredible women in our fun game segment "Never HaveI Ever" .
