Research & Development


The Research & Development (R&D) Department was established on February 2018, under the chairmanship of Dr. S. Hadi Abdullah. The department aims to provide information and carry out research on the pressing issues of the blind and the visually impaired. We recommend suggestions to improve the well-being of the community based on the research undertaken. We undertake actions through both in house Research and external Research approaches, such as, vigorous impartial data analysis, convening stakeholder discussions, being advocates of the knowledge acquired, convening discussions with Academic and Research Institutions to share the issues on visually impaired and the blind, and working together with these institutions to produce research papers. The department also aims to create inclusivity of the BVIs among the sighted. 

Some of the key strategies established by the department are:

  • Gathering key information & statistics
  • Publication & research library
  • Producing research reports & news
  • Reports compilation
  • Establishing a knowledge exchange network and;
  • Branding MAB
