Children's Vision Quality Improvement Project

The Improving Children’s Vision: Systems, Stakeholders & Support Collaborative is a project of the National Center for Children’s Vision and Eye Health at Prevent Blindness (NCCVEH) in partnership with the National Institute for Children’s Health Quality (NICHQ), and participating states.  Additionally, this project will draw on the wealth of professional and family advocate expertise found in the volunteer Advisory Committee of the NCCVEH. The Advisory Committee includes nationally recognized leaders in children’s health, vision care, public health, early education and childcare, vision research, and family advocacy. Beginning September 2016 through March 2018 we will test, share, and implement ideas to increase the detection, diagnosis, and treatment of vision problems in children ages 0-5 years old.
