Avoidable Blindness-Free Villages

Avoidable blindness-free (ABF) villages are communities where nobody is blind from a cause that can be avoided or prevented. Declaring a village this way means that its residents have been visited by community health workers and had all curable eye health problems resolved through proper care, and also that the village will have ongoing access to eye health care. This means that nobody there will ever be needlessly blind again!

Did you know that 80% of blindness is avoidable?

Yet, millions of people suffer from avoidable blindness. The ones who suffer most, often live in conditions of extreme poverty without access to the care they need, or the ability to pay. But there is hope. Starting with women like Shabnam.

Sustainable Development Goal #5: Gender Equality
