PBU supports IDB

The Prevention of blindness Union is developing the second generation of eye health programs for the Islamic development bank. The bank selected PBU as a consultant for the development of the second generation of its eye health program called: ‘Fight against avoidable blindness’. The second generation program comes after first generation program conducted by the bank in the last 5-7 years. The PBU with a consultant Dr Babar Qureshi developed a draft plan which was discussed at an all stakeholders meeting held in Rabat Morocco 6-7 January, 2016. The meeting was attended by the bank officials, PBU officials, representatives of some countries, donor agencies and non-governmental organizations involved in eye care.

The new program will expand its services to many more IDB member countries and cover wider spectrum of eye health interventions. The new program is expected to commence in less than a year from now.
