Working to continue the late Professor Fred Hollow's vision, The Fred Hollows Foundation in Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom, have come together to form a global network to increase our collective impact in eradicating avoidable blindness around the world. Through this new network, together, we will be able to enhance Foundation operations and programs in the countries where we work and bring funding bodies and program entities in a truly equal partnership. Collectively working in over twenty countries world-wide, with the help of our supporters, we hope to build on our record of restoring sight to well over one million people.
The Fred Hollows Foundation is an independent international non-government development organisation established in Australia in 1992. We provide technical and financial support to partners to overcome avoidable blindness everywhere. We focus on strengthening health systems and local capacity to prevent and treat cataract, refractive error, trachoma and diabetic retinopathy in more than 20 countries in Africa, Asia, Australia and the Pacific. We are committed to the Global Elimination of Trachoma by 2020 through the WHO endorsed SAFE strategy.
