VISION 2020: The Right to Sight-INDIA Knowledge Hub Presents this Webinar.
Different international mandates recommend integrating primary eye care with primary health care to build a strong national, people-centred eye care programme. The World Report on Vision (2019) emphasised the need to make eye care an integral part of universal health coverage and incorporate integrated people-centred eye care (IPEC) in health systems as the strategy to achieve the same.
One of the major areas of focus for the global community is universal health coverage. Primary health care and integrated people-centred eye care are the necessary foundations for this effort. This webinar will explore the Public private partnership (PPP) models setup by CBM, RP Centre, AIIMS and Operation Eyesight Universal (OEU) respectively and discuss the major findings followed by the recommendations to integrate primary eye care.
