Share your #advocacy success stories with us!

We advocate for policy change by telling the stories of persons living with #glaucoma. As the Global Glaucoma Network, the World Glaucoma Association is the prime organization to bring these stories together and help you plan and execute a successful glaucoma awareness campaign in your local community.

We are currently developing a toolkit for our glaucoma society members to have resources that will help showcase the silent thief of sight and educate the policymakers about the critical funding issues glaucoma research faces.

We need your help with this toolkit! Part of the toolkit will be best practices, for other members to get inspiration and useful tips.

Have you had great success in convincing your government to make eyesight a policy priority? Or do you have great videos about glaucoma that can help explain this to persons without a medical background? We would love to hear from you! Please reach out to the WGA Executive Office via info@worldglaucoma.org to share or receive more information about this project.
