If You Struggle to See, You Struggle to Learn: Accelerating Progress Towards the SDGs through School Eye Health Programmes
The United Nations Friends of Vision thank you for your interest in this important event.

The United Nations Friends of Vision invite you to a virtual event on the margins of the 2022 High-Level Political Forum. The event focuses on the critical role School Eye Programmes play in achieving inclusive and equitable education for all children, sustainable economic growth and substantial progress across the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The event will aim to address solutions and strategies to overcome unaddressed vision impairment in children that ultimately results in poorer educational outcomes, school exclusion, and risk to future earning potential and well-being.

Hear our expert panel discuss how school-based health interventions are the primary institutional pathway for reaching a majority of children on a regular basis, particularly with preventative interventions. They will address how School Health Programmes could be the single best approach to providing comprehensive and affordable eye health services to potentially more than 700 million children throughout the world.

This immersive discussion, between community voices, global policymakers and cross-sector experts, on the intersection between child eye health, SDG 4 – Quality Education and the achievement of the UNs 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is an important step in pushing the global child eye health agenda forward.

We look forward to you joining us.
