Myopia is the most common refractive error globally, affecting an estimated 2.6 billion people. Health promotion and education play a vital role in the prevention of myopia and its associated complications, while also raising awareness of good eye health behaviours and addressing common reasons for non-compliance with spectacle wear.

In the context of the Be [email protected] Be Mobile initiative, the World Health Organization and the International Telecommunication Union have developed “A toolkit on how to implement MyopiaEd”.

This toolkit includes evidence-based message libraries for key end-user groups, along with operational guidance and resources for adapting, implementing and monitoring the MyopiaEd programme. It is intended to assist policy- and decision-makers and implementers to establish a digital health programme targeting education on myopia and its prevention.

Captioning and interpretation into the 6 UN official languages will be available.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
