The International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB) was established in 1975 as a coordinating, umbrella organisation to lead international efforts in blindness prevention activities. IAPB brings together professional bodies, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), educational institutions, corporations and national programmes for the prevention of blindness towards realising the goals of VISION 2020: The Right to Sight, a global initiative for the elimination of avoidable blindness, launched in partnership with the World Health Organisation (WHO).
