According to the WHO (World Health Organization), 80% (4 out of 5 people) who suffer from vision problems are curable or preventable.Therefore, with its VISION2020 program, it aims to eliminate avoidable blindness in the world by proposing precise actions, such as having visual health professionals. In Mozambique, they only have 1 ophthalmologist for every 3 Million inhabitants, while here we have 1 for every 12,000 inhabitants.
With this objective, Ocularis, through its program, trains ophthalmologists and opticians so that they can cure their illnesses by themselves and transmit their knowledge to the new generations of doctors. Because training is the key to the development of a country, Ocularis work with this line.
- Provide training in eye health to the medical staff of the Ministry of Health of Mozambique in various hospitals in the country.
- Prevent future eye diseases through awareness, especially in school.
