National and Local WGW coordinator
How will coordinators be able to assist you in joining WGW?

Your coordinator represents the WGW Committee and has an overview of the activities organized in their region/country. They will be able to assist you with:

  • being a central contact point for local WGW participants (health care institutions, patient organizations, individual doctors)
  • being the WGW ambassador to the national authorities i.e. for official requests for auspices, official recognition, etc.
  • liaise with other professional organizations (e.g. opticians, optometrists, pharmacists) for joint awareness activities
  • liaise with industry to ensure transparency of sponsoring
  • provide information to the WGW committee on events organized in the country
