4.3 million people in the Philippines live with visual impairment. Our important programme prevented blindness and visual impairment by:
- providing cataract surgery and other treatments for eye conditions in both adults and children
- training health workers
- improving child eye health services
- advocating at government level for eye health to be incorporated in the overall health service.
This programme was supported by Seeing is Believing, a collaboration between Standard Chartered and the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB).Back
