RP Fighting Blindness is a member of Retina International (RI) and in fact were one of several charities from around the world which worked together to create the organisation in 1978. RI now brings together over 40 national organisations working in their respective countries to fight retinitis pigmentosa and other retinal dystrophies.

RI exists to promote the search - internationally - for a treatment, especially by keeping in touch with scientific developments around the world and doing all in its power to foster co-operation between scientists. RI provides support and encouragement to the national organisations (like us) and works to build public awareness and facilitate information exchange.
