The International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB) considers appropriate information as a vital resource in improving eye health. In resource-constrained settings especially, procurement decisions can play an important role in, ensuring appropriate equipment and supplies are accessed, equitable access to quality services is facilitated, the investment makes a satisfactory social return and significantly enhances the quality of life of the beneficiaries. IAPB consults panels of experts with considerable experience, to identify good practice and assist with the compilation of IAPB Essential Equipment Lists especially for use in in resource constrained settings. NGOs, Ministries of Health, District Health Services, eye clinics and hospitals can use the IAPB Essential Equipment lists to plan and purchase inventory.
