    I think this is a very important piece of work. Of course I am particularly interested because I am President of the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness, but it is interesting beyond that particular focus.
    First, it raises some important financing questions which I look forward to discussing at the Conference.
    But it also raises the cost effectiveness of prevention of disability, whether it is blindness or other forms of disability. This should not be seen as in competition with the fundamental issue of advancing the interests of people with disability in developing countries. This is a false dichotomy.
    They should be seen as two sides of the same coin.
