WHERE WE WORK

Orbis Africa was established in 2010, and has its head office in Cape Town, South Africa.  Orbis Africa is part of Orbis International. As one of the leading members of the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB), Orbis is known for its prevention and treatment strategies against avoidable blindness.

The ultimate goal of Orbis Africa’s work is to preserve or restore the sight of people living in highly impoverished communities in Africa. We strengthen eye health systems from community through primary, secondary and tertiary levels and raise awareness to make sure that services are used by the target beneficiaries in the countries where we work.

We work with local partners throughout Africa to develop their capacity for accessible, high quality, sustainable eye health services for all, regardless of their ability to pay.
