Description and results


This project aims to work with strategic partners to fund a limited number of innovative, compelling initiatives that make a tangible difference in people’s lives. The main program of the Trust is ending avoidable blindness. Ninety per cent of the world’s visually impaired people live in developing countries where eye health services are hugely inadequate. Investing in preventing blindness helps millions of people across the poorest Commonwealth countries to keep their sight or have it restored, and enjoy increased prosperity and a better quality of life. The Trust also focuses on promoting youth leadership across the Commonwealth. Commonwealth countries and their private sectors are making financial contributions to the Trust, which celebrates the Queen's 60-year contribution to the Commonwealth and to a life of public service

Expected results

The expected intermediate outcomes for this project include: (1) significant reduction in avoidable blindness across the Commonwealth; and (2) reduced prevalence of blinding trachoma, diabetic retinopathy (DR) and Retinopathy of Prematurity (RoP) in targeted areas of the Commonwealth.
