Impact Foundation Bangladesh (IFB) - Cure and Prevention of Cataract


The mission of IFB is essentially a holistic approach aimed at improving the living conditions of disadvantaged people and communities by preventing disability. The aim of IFB is to prevent and reduce the causes of disability and thereby help reduce poverty through sustainable efforts at the community and national levels.

Experts on disability frequently emphasize the need and importance of preventive interventions not only because of its effectiveness in reducing the occurrence of disability but also the reduced cost of such actions. The cost of preventive efforts is substantially lower. The ‘prevention approach’ has also longer term positive impact. Therefore, IFB is committed to further sharpen its focus on prevention of disability.

The objective of the proposed project is to creating access to surgical and non-surgical eye care services for the underserved population, residing on the banks of different rivers of Bangladesh and enabling themselves for avoiding permanent blindness.
