Sustainable Development Goals

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a universal call to action to create a more fair, just, and equitable world ensuring no one is left behind. In 2015, all member states of the United Nations adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. This agenda is comprised of 17 SDGs that provide a shared blueprint for a more peaceful, prosperous, and sustainable future for all. While all of the goals are interconnected, we focus on six goals that are core to our mission of preventing blindness and restoring sight.
