About

The primary purposes of the workshop (which will parallel closely the expanding workshop programme currently underway in about thirty countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America) will be to familiarise participants with:

  • the aims, objectives and strategies of the VISION 2020: the Right to Sight programme.
  • the principles of planning involved in implementing district and national level eye care programmes
  • how the PEEK technology (portable eye examination kit) can be used in eye care programmes

The course programme will look at survey methodologies and strategies for control of the major blinding diseases. Time will be allocated to group work to plan eye care programmes for specific target populations.

Teaching Methods

The course will be taught by staff of the International Centre for Eye Health in the School's Faculty of Infectious & Tropical Diseases, with experience of workshop delivery in community eye health in many parts of the developing world, will give instruction on the course. A comprehensive manual will be provided to accompany the presentations.

Accreditation

35 Continuing Professional Development (CPD) credits have been awarded by the Royal College of Ophthalmologists under category B for the 2016-intake, and we expect the same approval for 2017.
