Last year, the 9th General Assembly of the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB) was held in Hyderabad, India between September 17 and 20. The theme for the conference was “Eye Health: Everyone’s Business.” 1,600 participants from the fields of ophthalmology and optometry attended from 66 countries and there was significant participation from those on the frontlines of delivering eye care services in hospitals and community and vision centers. All sectors were represented including government, business, not-for-profit and civil society. One hundred and twenty speakers covered every aspect of blindness prevention. India is home to 37% of all vitamin A deficient children in the world, an important determinant for childhood blindness. In this context, Klaus Kraemer from Sight and Life and Clayton Ajello from Vitamin Angels co-chaired a key panel discussion on “The prevention of vitamin A deficiency (VAD) in Indian children through nutritional interventions.”
