WHO and ITU launch Be Mobile toolkit for myopia (MyopiaEd)

Within the framework of the Be He@lthy Be Mobile initiative, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) have designed ‘A toolkit on how to implement MyopiaEd.’ Myopia is the most common refractive error globally, affecting an estimated 2.6 billion people. Alongside evidence-based message libraries for key end-user groups, the toolkit provides operational guidance and resources for adapting, implementing, and monitoring the MyopiaEd programme. It is intended to assist policy- and decision-makers and implementers to establish a digital health programme targeting education on myopia and its prevention.
