Untitled 12 - L’Organisation pour la Prévention de la Cécité (OPC) encourage le renforcement des systèmes de santé oculaire et lutte pour le droit à la vue des populations les plus négligées en Afrique francophone.

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 preserve sight and fight blindness compared to Anglophone Africa. OPC fights blindness, avoidable blinding diseases and empowers underserved communities in Francophone Africa.

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

Francophone Africa is frequently overlooked by international development stakeholders. OPC works with local governments, civil society organizations and communities to fight blindness, encourage local ownership of eye health care systems and ensure their human right to sight.
