What are the steps you have taken to develop your eye hospital into a sustainable eyehospital? From waste minimisation to saving water we all have a role to play in this addressing the threats related to global warming. What impact will climate change have on global eye health?

Sustainability is one of the five themes on which we will exchange knowledge and experience. Want to join the discussion? Join the 17th WAEH Annual Meeting in October in Melbourne and Sydney.

Innovation, philanthropy, human resources and quality and safety are crucial in eye hospitals and will also be highlighted at the Annual Meeting. These themes shape eye hospitals and ensure innovative and sustainable practices while delivering high-quality and safe eye care services.
