Booklet – Seva Canada – Gender and Blindness: Addressing Inequity

Seva Canada is a charity whose mission is to restore sight and prevent blindness in developing countries. Their new Gender and Blindness booklet is updated with research and strategies to overcome the barriers women and girls face in accessing care.


Seva Canada and its partners’ research clearly reveals that, in order to achieve our Vision 2020 goals , eye care programs must develop strategies which help us reach the most vulnerable populations – particularly women and girls. We encourage our program partners to disaggregate data by sex, determine gender-specific barriers to increased uptake of services, and study strategies to increase utilization by women and girls. Seva looks forward to collaborating with all international eye care providers to eliminate all forms of inequities in eye care.
