VISION 2020 is the global initiative for the elimination of avoidable blindness, a joint program of the World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB) with an international membership of NGOs, professional associations, eye care institutions and corporations.
The many successes of VISION 2020 have been achieved through a unique, cross-sector collaboration, which enables public, private and non-profit interests to work together, helping people to see, all over the world. VISION 2020's principles, targets and milestones come from the 'VISION 2020 Action Plan' (See the original Action Plan and its update in 2006), they have since been updated and replaced by the WHO Global Action Plan 2014-19: Towards Universal Eye Health.
