Success of the annual meetings of IAPB and NNN that were held in Paris

The OPC team was excited to host the meetings of the main stakeholders in the fight against blindness and Neglected Tropical Diseases.
Nearly 200 experts from 35 organisations participated in these meetings.

OPC would like to thank our many partners that made these events possible. :
- Children Without Worms
- The End fund
- EnVision
- Mectizan Donation Program
- SightSavers
- Fondation Théa

We would also like to thank the representatives of the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Coordination Sud and the Institute of Research for Development for their support in favour of the Francophone countries of Africa that receive on average much less international aid than the Anglophone countries.

Finally we would like to thank Maximize Your Time for their wonderful contribution in helping organise these meetings and ensuring they went smoothly.

More than ever, OPC continues to fund and fight against preventable blindness in Francophone Africa. These efforts will contribute to the improvement of eye care for thousands of the most disenfranchised people living in the poorest conditions.
