Action in Global Advocacy is spearheaded by the International Federation on Ageing. It is a movement together with local organizations working together to influence policy and mobilize resources to improve the eye health of older adults.
Moving into the future, AGA seeks to extend advocacy efforts beyond eye health to address dynamic changes across the lifecourse that impact one’s quality of life in old age.
Builds a coalition: Bridging of vision and ageing organizations to help build strong advocacy campaigns raising awareness of age-related eye diseases.
Is a resource repository: A centralized hub of knowledge and examples of effective advocacy strategies and campaigns.
Is a monitoring body: To be a liaison between organizations and governments and the go-to for the dissemination of policy updates.
There is an immediate sense of urgency and a global responsibility to address this leading cause of disability among this segment of the population.
Civil Society organizations have a pivotal role to play to advocate, educate, and collaborate to ensure that vision impairment and blindness is no longer regarded as an inevitable condition of ageing.
