Package of Eye Care Interventions

The Package of Eye Care Interventions is an upcoming resource created by WHO to help countries to plan and budget the implementation of eye care interventions.

The package will be integrated in WHO’s UHC repository of interventions, containing interventions across all of WHO’s programmatic health areas. It will also be included in the WHO’s OneHealth Tool, a software application developed to support governments, particularly in low- and middle-income countries, to estimate the resource requirements for a comprehensive and integrated national health strategic plan.

The PECI will also be an important tool for identifying gaps in evidence and defining the research strategies which could be deployed to address these gaps. The PECI will provide a useful basis for return on investment studies to provide evidence on how scaling up the coverage of eye care intervention packages can secure health, social and economic return.

The PECI is expected to be launched in 2021.
