The right to see in Mozambique

The Right to See has been set as a priority in the world’s development agenda by the World Health Organization. The objective is to eradicate avoidable blindness by 2020. Mozambique is one of the most affected countries in the world, counting with a 500.000 eye diseased population and as few as 8 professional ophthalmologists.

Acknowledging that most of these diseases could be prevented by a minimum health care, we at Worldcoo believe we have the power to change things. With the help of our visionary sponsor Cottet, the project “Out of sight, not out of mind” could make the difference. By bringing an ophthalmologic training course to the Central Hospital of Maputo doctors and nurses, and treating 80 eye patients, Ocularis surgeons will help improve Mozambique health care system.

Help us bring Mozambique a new vision for a brighter future.
