Description:

The purpose of the grant opportunity is to improve the wellbeing of people with macular disease by increasing the availability of evidence-based information for consumers within the general public who are affected by or at risk of developing macular disease. This grant opportunity seeks to develop evidence-based resources on macular disease on the early symptoms, the importance of screening for the condition, early intervention and treatment. Early detection and prompt intervention leads to better vision outcomes.

The objective of the grant opportunity is to support the implementation of the Macular Action Plan. This includes:
 - Strengthen current education campaigns for the general public
 - Develop education campaigns for people over 50 years of age
 - Partner with diabetes and other key organisations, to combine expertise in diabetes and macular disease, to develop targeted education programs for people with diabetes, who are at greater risk of developing macular disease.
 - Establish mechanisms for regular evaluation and improvement of education campaigns to ensure there is a measurable positive impact.
 - Increase the awareness of genetic testing and counselling for people with a macular disease with genetic causation.
