Government and out of pocket expenditure account for 90+% health expenditure in most low income countries. Conclusions The $127bn required to strengthen eye health systems and eliminate avoidable blindness by 2020 has to come primarily from within countries.
Key advocacy target is national Governments. i) Increase their commitment to their expenditure on eye health. ii) Increase social protection and insurance provision to reduce out of pocket expenditure – and include eye health in this provision. Premises Engagement with the World Bank is important because of the INFLUENCE it has on national government policies and on other donors.
