IAPB Vision Atlas
The IAPB Vision Atlas website is a compilation of the latest data and evidence relevant to all those who believe that in the 21st Century no one should have to live with avoidable blindness or sight loss – from eye conditions many of which can be easily treated or prevented and for which cost-effective solutions are readily available.
The IAPB Vision Atlas is designed around two main sets of data: the estimates of the burden of blindness and visual impairment made by the Vision Loss Expert Group (VLEG) and national level performance against the key indicators laid out in the World Health Assembly resolution 66.4 ‘Universal Eye Health: a Global Action Plan 2014 – 2019’ (the GAP).
