The Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Trust is a charitable foundation with a mission to leave a lasting legacy, owned by the whole Commonwealth, in honour of Her Majesty The Queen.

The Trust is working with members of the International Coalition for Trachoma Control to make significant advances towards the elimination of blinding trachoma – the world’s leading cause of infectious blindness – in 12 Commonwealth countries. It is implementing the World Health Organization endorsed SAFE strategy to fight the disease.
