Latin America is probably the best mapped region in the world in regard to blindness and low vision epidemiology, with 16 RACSS and RAAB studies in the last 10 years and a very comprehensive review of all the publications available in the last 26.5 years.  The aim of this tool is to provide NGOs, researchers and MoH, based on the recent PAHO PBL plan for the region, with up to date information in a “one stop” manner, so that they can better plan the investment of precious scarce resources base on best available information.
