Projected global numbers of deaths by cause for high, middle and low incomecountries (WHO, 2008)Is NCD a development issue? YES!(and the case for investment is strong)NCDs are a cause and consequence of povertyNCDs entrench poverty-cycle of debtCosts of loss of productivity and care will increase as the burden risesInaction will pose problems on fragile health systemsAnd action on NCDs will contribute to progress for other global priorities, e.g. MDGs NCDs: Economic ImpactNCDs accounted for five of the six top causes of economic loss in 2008Heart disease : $752bnStroke: $298bnDiabetes: $204bn

NCDs cost developing countries up to 6.77% of GDP; this economic burden is more than that caused by Malaria (1960s) or AIDS (1990s) - IOM Report 2010NCDs will lead to a loss of 30 Trillion Dollars globally up to 2030 representing 48% of global GDP in 2010 Harvard + WEF Study 2011Are affordable cost-effective interventions available? YES!

-Sir Muir Gray (2007)How Do we then gather more strength

In our advocacy for adoption andadvancement of policies for eye health?A Framework for Determinants of Issue Attention in Global Health

The collective strength of the actors mobilising around an issue; The ideas they use to portray and position the issue;(iii) The issue characteristics that pertain to inherent features of the issue; and (iv) The nature of the political context or features of the environment that individuals confront as they seek to advance attention of the issue, including other actors who do not work on the issue (Jeremy Shiffman, 2010)

The Economic Argument

Cause and Consequence of PovertyProductivity LossesCost-Effective Treatments (Best Buys)

Global cost of Visual Impairment and Blindness = USD 3 TrillionPatel and Ireland (Sightsavers)

Vision Impairment is the 6th largest cause of DALY loss (3%)- WHO

How is Vision Loss weighted for estimation of Disability?- Perspective of Physicians- Perspective of Patients- Perspective of People

Quality of Life is an important message to conveyValue of VisionWhy Do We Need A Rights ArgumentEconomic arguments work BUT there are competing demands (within and beyond the Health Sector)Voice of Patients and Civil Society needed - e.g. HIV-AIDS, Tobacco Control
