ITI works in partnership with governments and numerous international and local organizations to support the implementation of the SAFE Strategy. Collaboration is crucial to the fight to eliminate blinding trachoma. ITI supports the World Health Organization’s Alliance for Global Elimination of Trachoma by 2020 (GET 2020) and is a member of the global alliance VISION 2020: The Right to Sight.
