Printed edition

Paper copies of the International and French editions of the Community Eye Health Journal are distributed free of charge to health care providers in low and middle-income countries where the burden of preventable blindness is greatest and where internet access remains challenging, especially in rural and remote settings

Currently (January 2016) we send paper copies directly to 22,500 subscribers, mostly in Sub-Saharan Africa.
