Vision Health and Healthy Ageing | IFA Vision Health Month Statement


May is Vision Health Month, and the IFA is committed to advancing the rights of older people by influencing policy towards making integrated people-centred eye care (IPCEC) a reality, which is integral to universal health coverage.

The IFA’s Vision Health Portfolio, which consists of the DR Barometer and the EyeSeeYou programs, focuses on addressing gaps and exploring the latest trends in treatment and outcomes related to diabetes-related vision complications and age-related macular degeneration.

The Portfolio’s Statement is now available here.
