IHOPE was established with a bold and very ambitious goal in mind – to use data and AI driven research to transform eye health and eye care in India and ultimately the world. To use these lessons to drive policy, equity, quality, cost, access and education to catalyze sustainable changes that health systems so desperately need. All its activities are anchored in data and rooted in science, driving new health care models that are germane to India. This is what all healthcare should be all about. In its two years, IHOPE is laying the path and is becoming an example for a national transformation in healthcare.
