IAPB continues with plans for hosting the Global Assembly 2020 in Singapore, this October, but appreciates that people need time to adjust to new working conditions and managing new pressures as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak.

With this in mind, IAPB has extended the Global Assembly 2020 call for abstracts to 20 April 2020.

For the first time the Global Assembly is accepting submissions for three programme streams – Sustainability, Excellence and Western Pacific. The Excellence stream will give prominence to ensuring quality eye care is a cornerstone of delivering eye health services in all contexts/settings. A dedicated Sustainability stream will focus the sector’s efforts on achieving environmental, financial and organisational sustainability in line with the SDGs. The Western Pacific stream will showcase the achievements, innovations and challenges of the host region and foster collaborations and networks across the region and internationally.

Please refer to GA2020 abstract guidelines for more information.

Note there is no obligation to register your attendance to GA2020 upon submitting an abstract.
