WGW is successfully recognized on five continents and participants donate their time for one week each March. (Please add pictures of glaucoma screening in United Nations building)
The work of national societies helps the WGW agenda reach rural as well as urban areas.
There is a presence throughout the media (radio, TV, and newspapers) which spreads awareness about glaucoma in the news.
Patient associations are involved in targeting activities for people at risk and providing useful information for the close relatives of glaucoma patients.
