The International Visual Health Unit (USVI) is an interdisciplinary center, aimed at improving the eye health of disadvantaged populations.
The USVI was born from an interfaculty agreement at the University of Montreal bringing together various initiatives from the Faculty of Medicine, the School of Public Health and its International Health Unit (USI), and from the School of Optometry.
The mission of the USVI is to contribute to the improvement of visual health and the reduction of avoidable visual deficiencies in developing and transition countries, as well as in our more deprived local populations.
It is the only French-speaking North American organization that brings together professionals and students from various disciplines to promote training, expertise, technical support and research in international visual health.
