As such this role has the flexibility to be based in a variety of different locations, subject to complying with right to work requirements. Travel to programmes using Peek in different countries will be part of the role (in line with Peek’s Travel Safety Policy). Peek’s culture enables a self managed team structure.

  • Deliver Peek Solutions within designated partnerships and individuals.

  • Develop continuous reporting and documentation of programmes.

About Peek

Poor vision and blindness are the world’s most neglected disabilities.   Millions of people worldwide are held back because they don’t live near eye health facilities or can’t access treatment.  Most people affected by blindness and poor eyesight live in low- and middle-income countries, and young people, older people and women carry the greatest burden.

Peek Vision is a social enterprise which develops evidence-based smartphone tools to improve access to eye care.  We develop software, hardware and data visualisations to help health services sustainably improve access to eye care.  Peek is developing these systems with its partners to reach the people who most need access to eye care in low- and middle-income countries. 

Peek is an impact-driven organisation, always focused on the people and communities who can benefit the most from improved eye care.  We have offices in Botswana, Kenya and the UK, and our team works with partners across the world to bring better vision and health to everybody. 

Peek Solutions

Peek Capture is a smartphone app that allows non-specialists - such as teachers and community health workers - to conduct vision screening and eye health surveys in homes, communities and schools. It integrates the visual acuity check from our award-winning Peek Acuity Android App, allowing anyone to check visual acuity using a smartphone.

Peek Admin is a web platform that displays the real-time data entered in Capture, allowing healthcare providers to understand where the need is greatest and how to improve services. 

They are used to power our two main offers:

Peek for School and Community Eye Health Programmes

We use Peek Capture to help eye health providers reach communities and join up local services, while data from Peek Admin helps ensure those who need treatment are reached. We offer our public health expertise to adapt the solutions to local needs and help partners analyse the data for iterative improvement.

We have supported eye health programmes in Pakistan, India, Zimbabwe, Kenya and Botswana with more set to launch in Uganda, Ethiopia and Tanzania.

Peek for RAAB7

RAAB (Rapid Assessment of Avoidable Blindness) is a rapid survey methodology developed at ICEH (International Centre for Eye Health) to identify the prevalence of eye health issues in a given population. Identifying population need is the first step to advocating for and designing impactful programmes.
