Congratulations to Dr. Parvez Memon, our new Global Director of International Programmes.

“I am grateful for this opportunity to lead the international programs team as we focus on creating access to eye health care services and delivering our programs in a safe care environment,” says Parvez. “Our goal is to build resilient communities that have access to quality, integrated health care. In the wake of the pandemic, our work to bring eye health care services closer to people’s homes is more critical than ever.”
