World Sight Day – the most important advocacy and communications day in the eye health calendar – is on 14th October 2021
World Sight Day (WSD) WSD is co-ordinated by the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB). WSD became an official IAPB event in the year 2000, and has been marked in many different ways in countries around the world each year since then. WSD is the focal advocacy and PR event for IAPB and its members and partners each year, highlighting the fact that at least 1 billion people have a vision impairment that could have been prevented or has yet to be addressed. WSD provides a platform for organisations to encourage governments, corporations, institutions and individuals to actively support universal access to eye health.
