Eye Care Concept of SRC International Cooperation
For more than 20 years, the Swiss Red Cross (SRC) has been working in a number of countries promoting eye health and preventing visual impairment and blindness1. The SRC has built up extensive expertise and is recognised as an important and valuable actor in the eye care sector. Within the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, the SRC is one of the few National Societies to engage in and support the eye care sector.
This document aims to reflect the current global situation with regard to eye care trends and opportunities and determines the future position and strategic directions of the SRC in eye care for the next five (2012-2016) years.
