Walk for Sight 2013 was held on Sunday October 6th, 2013 at the Queen’s Park Savannah, opposite Stanmore Avenue at 7:00 AM. The gallery above contains some memorable moments from the event.
The year 2013 marks the launch of a new WHO Action Plan on the prevention of avoidable blindness and visual impairment 2014-19.
The Action Plan identifies its purpose as ‘increasing access to comprehensive eye care services that are integrated into health systems’. The theme for World Sight Day 2013 comes from this focus. ‘Universal Eye Health’ embodies many critical aspects of successful eye health uptake, and so IAPB believes that we should use a rolling theme – so ‘Universal Eye Health’ will remain the theme for the next couple of years.
