Strategic Plan 2017 – 2020 “Towards a Better World – Optometry’s Role”

Our Strategic Plan reflects the Advocacy Strategy for 2017-2020 adopted by the Governing Board in September 2017, which emphasizes Optometry’s intrinsically important role in solving the global problem of Uncorrected Refractive Errors (UREs).  This Strategy fits with the World Health Organization Global Plan 2014-2019, which aims to further improve eye health, reduce avoidable visual impairment and secure access for rehabilitation services and sets up a global target to reduce the prevalence of avoidable visual impairment by 25 percent by 2019. This Plan sets out the future direction of WCO and identifies  Strategic Themes that we will work towards over the coming years.
