report Sightsavers

This Commonwealth Day (12 March) Sightsavers and partners are celebrating the progress being made on eliminating blinding trachoma in Uganda

Trachoma is an excruciating yet treatable eye disease. Globally, 182 million people are at risk of going blind because of trachoma and 1.9 million people are blind or visually impaired because of it. The issue particularly affects the Commonwealth, where 85 million people are affected by poor eye health.
