Eyecare: A Best Buy in Healthcare
The global nonprofit eyecare organization, Seva Foundation, just released a groundbreaking study in the Bulletin of the World Health Organization. Using cost-benefit analysis, the report “meticulously and transparently quantifies the return on investment of 21 identified studies across 10 low-and-middle-income countries”.
It’s results prove that every dollar spent on
refractive error or cataract correction returns $36 in benefits.
That’s six times more efficient
than the typical development intervention!
Vision for the Poor and Seva Foundation are partnering to complete Guatemala Brillando: Our shared plan to end treatable blindness in Guatemala by 2032. We are helping Visualiza – Guatemala’s only social social service eye care network, founded in 1997 – to scale its self-sustaining network of Vision Centers and Eye Care Hospitals nationwide, making the highest quality of eye care accessible and affordable to every man, woman, and child in Guatemala, regardless of ability to pay.
