Full course description

Description

The Social Responsibility presentation aims to provide an outline of four cross cutting issues that have relevance in development strategies and cut across all public health initiatives: gender equity, disability inclusiveness, child protection and environmental protection.

These priority areas for development are often not acknowledged for many reasons including (but not limited to); leadership, lack of resources or capacity, system failures, lack of or poor definitions of the issues, budget and strategy.These issues are key to development effectiveness and therefore can contribute to poverty reduction with a particular focus on vulnerable groups or neglected areas.

This presentation can be used to advocate and educate for gender equity, disability inclusiveness, child protection and environmental protection in eye health and vision care development.
