Melbourne: Vision 2020 Australia

In 2015, Vision 2020 Australia called on the Australian Government to implement a package of sector-supported initiatives to improve the eye health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. This report acknowledges recent Australian Government investments and initiatives in the eye health and vision care sector and calls on the Government to build on its commitment to close the gap for vision by 2020. The report proposes a series of program and implementation priorities endorsed by the eye health sector and makes recommendations to strengthen existing Australian Government investments and initiatives.
