Who does CBM Partner with?

CBM’s priority in work with other organisations is to develop (in partnership) sustainable healthcare and community solutions, which will promote the full inclusion of persons with disabilities in all aspects of society.

CBM recognises that as a professional organisation for people with disabilities it can play an important role together with other organisations to strengthen this field of work. Such organisations have included the International Agency for Prevention of Blindness (IAPB), the International Council for the Education of People with Visual Impairment (ICEVI), the World Health Organisation (WHO), and other policy-making bodies.

As a founding member of the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness, CBM helped to develop a partnership with WHO to form the global alliance working on VISION2020, a global initiative to eliminate avoidable blindness by the year 2020. CBM is similarly involved with WWHearing, a global partnership to promote the provision of affordable hearing aids and services worldwide.

Partnership is a key aspect of the way CBM works. CBM always works together with Partner organisations, developing with them plans of action that best meet the needs and potentials of persons with disabilities in given countries.

We aspire to follow the Human rights based approach, meaning that in all planning the ‘consumer’ or ‘rights holder/beneficiary’ is included in programme planning and design.
