A report by the Elderly Blind Working Group of WBU concluded that we will be faced with a growing number of elderly blind people particularly in countries that currently have poor health and social care infrastructures.
See the press release: AMD European Time Bomb Dec. 2012
Working in partnership with the AMD Alliance International, a campaign resource was released at the General Assembly of the WBU in Bangkok. These resource links and materials intend to help organisations plan a strategy for supporting elderly blind people; these will be based around six key themes including low cost low vision.
Further information will be available on the WBU website under our Resources section and also the AMDAI website.
