WORLD COUNCIL OF OPTOMETRY

The World Council of Optometry (WCO) is an international membership-based non-profit organization for individual optometrists, industry professionals and optometric organizations.

 

Our vision is of a world where optometry makes high quality eye health and vision care accessible to all people.

 

Our mission is to facilitate the development of optometry around the world and support optometrists in promoting eye health and vision care as a human right through advocacy, education, policy development and humanitarian outreach.

Transnet-Phelophepa

Transnet-Phelophepa is a healthcare clinic on wheels that travels into areas of rural South Africa where there is just one doctor for every 5,000 patients.

 

Literally translated, ‘Phelophepa’ means ‘good, clean health’ and this encapsulates the essence of what the train aims to achieve.
