Organization for the Prevention of Blindness

The Organization for the Prevention of Blindness (OPC) ensures the human right to sight and provides local research, treatments and cures for people affected by blindness and blinding diseases in Francophone Africa since 1978

Did you know?

Francophone Africa receives far less foreign aid funding to provide access to quality eye care, restore sight and fight blindness compared to Anglophone Africa. The Organization for the Prevention of Blindness (OPC) fights blindness, avoidable blindness and blinding diseases. OPC empowers underserved communities in Francophone Africa.

OPC FIGHTS blindness and PREVENTS BLINDNESS BY EMPOWERING FRANCOPHONE AFRICANS THROUGH SUSTAINABLE ACCESS TO SIGHT.

Francophone Africa is frequently overlooked by international development stakeholders when it comes to restoring sight and providing quality eye care. The Organization for the Prevention of Blindness (OPC) works with local governments, civil society organizations and communities to fight blindness, restore vision, encourage local ownership of eye health care systems and ensure human right to sight.
