A world in which everyone has access to the best possible standard of eye health; where no one is needlessly visually impaired; and where those with irreparable vision loss achieve their full potential.
To achieve universal access to eye health, by:
- adding value to and maximising the impact of the individual and collective work of our Members, including those who strive for the inclusion and rehabilitation of those with vision loss,
- promoting knowledge and awareness of comprehensive eye health system development, particularly at country level.
In all our endeavours, IAPB Members, staff and supporters will strive to be guided by the following values:
Plurality – we embrace the plurality of approaches we adopt in the pursuit of our common goals, in the belief that our strength derives from diversity rather than uniformity.
Collaboration – we believe that by working together we have far greater chances of achieving change than any one organisation can alone. We actively seek partnerships and collaboration with others as an effective means to achieve our vision.
