So much has been achieved in 2011.

Fred's vision to end avoidable blindness and improve Indigenous health continues in The Foundation's work as we take on global challenges—combatting blinding eye conditions such as cataract and trachoma, and giving thousands of doctors, nurses and community health workers the skills they need to bring eye care to people in some of the world's most challenging regions.

At home, we worked to close the gap in life expectancy between Indigenous people and other Australians, tackling avoidable blindness and improving childhood nutrition.
