Dr Justin Mora on Vision 2030 and beyond Aotearoa

Introducing Dr Justin Mora, Chair of the RANZCO Māori and Pasifika Eye Health Committee and clinical lead of the Vision 2030 and beyond Aotearoa consultation, which was launched on 5 May 2023.

Tasked with addressing eye health inequity in Aotearoa New Zealand, Vision 2030 and beyond recognises that access to timely eye healthcare is a fundamental human right – the Right to Sight.

As the standard-setting body for ophthalmologists, RANZCO is ideally placed to lead the way among eye healthcare stakeholders and ensure that there is one coherent plan for New Zealand eye healthcare into the future.

Among the recommendations to implement a national eye health strategy, Vision 2030 and beyond Aotearoa encourages the development of collaborative care arrangements, increased resources to support the training and retention of healthcare workers, greater partnerships with our Pacific Island nations to build resilience and in-country capacity, the implementation of a rigorous surveillance system as a preventative service and the implementation of sustainable protocols to improve our carbon footprint.

A national approach presents an opportunity to improve ophthalmology service delivery by improving waitlist management efficiency, increasing equity, shortening waiting times and enhancing the patient experience. This will help us align with the Pae Ora and Ola Manuia strategic frameworks, and Māori and Pasifika models of health, for example: Te Whare Tapa Wha and Fonofale.

We invite you to review our Vision 2030 and Beyond Aotearoa plan and provide feedback to policy@ranzco.edu before 15 July 2023.
