Sightsavers is an international organisation that works with partners in more than 30 countries to eliminate avoidable blindness, and fight for the rights and needs of people with disability. Sightsavers commenced its programme in Bangladesh in 1973 in partnership with both the government and non-government organizations. The work of Sightsavers is concentrated in three thematic areas, Eye Health, Education and Social Inclusion. Sightsavers is implementing  a project ‘The Right to Health: Breaking Down Barriers to Eye Health’ in South Asia funded by UKAid from July  2018 to June 2021 in partnership with four NGO hospitals, which are i) Dhaka Progressive Lions Eye Hospital (DPLEH) in Narshingdi, ii) Prof. M A Matin BNSB Memorial Eye Hospital, iii) Community Eye Care and Research Centre (CECRC) in Rangpur, and iv) Marium Eye Hospital (MEH), Kurigram.

People with disabilities face widespread barriers to accessing health services, such as poor accessibility of infrastructure, availability and affordability of the services that they need  including rehabilitation services and have poorer health outcomes than people without disabilities. In addition people with disabilities commonly face discrimination in accessing health services, face prejudice with respect to their right and access to treatment and are often excluded from decisions about their health. People with disabilities typically face higher health costs (often related to their impairment) and are at the same time more likely to be out of employment and at greater risk of catastrophic health expenditure. Sightsavers seeks to address the barriers that people with disabilities face in accessing health and within that eye health.
