"VISION 2020: the Right to Sight" is a global campaign aimed at eliminating avoidable blindness by the year 2020, the product of a series of consultations between the WHO and NGOs working toward blindness prevention.
The VISION 2020 Global Initiative has subsequently been complemented and built upon by a series of additional plans. In 2006 VISION 2020 stakeholders developed an action plan for the period 2006-11, which extended the remit to focus not only upon the elimination of avoidable blindness, but to include visual impairment – particularly that caused by uncorrected refractive error.
"Youth Ministry" is a new small programme in BICO. It supports youth who are born again Christians and are involved in Ministry at their local church with travel and upkeep who would like to attend very important youth conference, seminar or retreat.
It is funded by the BICO's Director. All interested are asked to submit an application to the coordinator of the programme specifying the seminar/conference and why it's important to attend the conference. Female youth are given preference.
Blantyre Institute for Community Ophthalmology (BICO) is a locally registered Eye Health charitable Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) that works in collaboration with the Ministry of Health, Education and other International NGOs and many academic institutions, including the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
