The International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB) called for entries to its new Young Systems Leader Awards to celebrate ‘professionals who embody critical systems thinking’.

The initiative focused on IAPB’s ambitions in the 2030 In Sight Strategy – calling on individuals and organisations to embrace a holistic systems approach and integrating eye care within health systems.

Caroline Casey, IAPB president, said: ‘The IAPB Young Systems Leader Awards celebrates the brilliance, enthusiasm, and collaborative spirit that will define the future of eye health and change the lives of so many for the better.

'By investing in these inspiring young professionals IAPB wants to empower them to champion systems change and ensure everyone, everywhere has access to quality eye care.’
