The association has various partnership arrangements with several national and international bodies. These partnerships seek to improve the coverage of eye care services as well as improvement in eye health quality.
Some of these partners include:
- The World council of Optometry
The World Council of Optometry (WCO) is an international optometric organisation representing 250,000 optometrists from 96 member organisations in 49 countries. We are the worldwide organisation for the professionals working in the field of optometry, their associations and institutions. Check WCO on www.worldoptometry.org
- African Council of Optometry
The African Council of Optometry was inaugurated in 1998 at Abuja, Nigeria. The move for its formation was initiated by the World Council of Optometry to make regional representation at the world council more effective. During the conference of the International Association of Contact Lens Educators (IACLE) in Durban, South Africa, in July 1996 the organization was proposed. The following countries and representatives were present in Durban for that purpose: Gambia was represented by B.S Daffeh; Ghana was represented by Dr Francis Morny, Beatrice Letsu and Angela Amedo. Kenya was represented by Prof. B.S Mencias; Nigeria was represented by Dr Emma Esenwa; Tanzania was represented by J.Kamugisha and Valerian Lyiimo; Togo was represented by Senanu Quacoe and South Africa was represented by Alan Rubin and other national officers. Peter Stevenson (Immediate Past President of the WCO at the time) was present at that meeting, and Prof. Dan Sheni played important roles in the realization of AFCO.
