As advised by the WHO, we a re in the process of capturing valuable global data to help determine service gaps – and ultimately where and how the international community can support each other.
Initially, the Global Alliance will be collecting annual figures for total donors and total corneal transplants per country. Over time the data frame may change but the intent is to commence with these two items.
Members who are already submitting data to their Association, do not need to do anything as their Association will automatically add their data to their national total.
Data collected by Associations will be de-identified and submitted to the Global Alliance as one national tally for each country.
The Global Alliance would like to thank Brian Philippy —member of the EBAA, for his assistance with the development of this initiative.
