global vision database
The main purposes of GVD are to:
for the prevalence of blindness and vision impairment and risk factors globally and to make these accessible.
Advise WHO and other international organizations
on the most appropriate methods and assumptions for their global, regional and country level eye health epidemiological estimates.
and public health officials on the different issues involved in the estimation of cause-specific blindness and vision impairment.
Act as repository
of high quality population-based studies of blindness and vision impairment data, in order to heighten accuracy of estimates and to securely preserve datasets into the future.
