Supporters and partners
Since its inception more than two decades ago, the Rapid Assessment of Avoidable Blindness has received funding support from many donors including CBM, the Danish International Development Agency (Danida), Fight for Sight, The Fred Hollows Foundation, the Indigo Trust, International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB), International Centre for Eye Health (ICEH) at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, Orbis, Peek Vision, The Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Trust, Sightsavers and the World Health Organization.
RAAB7 was developed in consultation with a steering group made up of representatives from IAPB, the Vision Loss Expert Group (VLEG), the Vision Catalyst Fund and major eye health non-governmental organisations including CBM, The Fred Hollows Foundation and Sightsavers. Dr Hans Limburg, who first developed the RAAB methodology, remains an active member of the steering group, along with several senior certified RAAB Trainers. The steering group’s valuable input has helped shape RAAB7 to best serve the sector.
