At The Fred Hollows Foundation our vision is a world in which no person is needlessly blind and Indigenous Australians exercise their right to good health. For 4 out of 5 blind people, blindness is avoidable. That is, 80 per cent of blindness or vision loss can be either prevented or treated.
We have employees working in 20 countries across Asia, Africa and in Australia to end avoidable blindness. As we grow, a priority is to make sure every person that works for The Foundation around the world has the information they need, to do their job at their fingertips.
Our intranet, FredNet, is central to achieving this. FredNet provides one place to look for our employees as our knowledge base is made accessible globally. It also allows us to provide better service delivery and be much more efficient, as previously paper-based processes can be automated.
