The Fred Hollows Foundation
The Fred Hollows Foundation is an independent international non-government development organisation established in Australia in 1992, New Zealand in 1993 and the UK in 1998. Working to continue the late Professor Fred Hollow's vision, we provide technical and financial support to partners to overcome avoidable blindness everywhere. We focus on strengthening health systems and local capacity to prevent and treat cataract, refractive error, trachoma and diabetic retinopathy in more than 20 countries in Africa, Asia, Australia and the Pacific. We believe that collaboration, getting things done with integrity, and empowering local communities is the best way to make a difference. We are committed to the Global Elimination of Trachoma by 2020 through the WHO endorsed SAFE strategy.
We are proud members of the WHO Alliance for GET2020, the International Coalition for Trachoma Control (ICTC) and the NTD NGO Network (NNN).
