WHAT AND HOW DO WE DO IT?
We carry out development cooperation, which is not assistance-based, transforming health and social care in the most disadvantaged and least developed part of the planet, Sub-Saharan Africa, where visual deficiencies still today mark the future of millions of people without resources.
We empower visual health professionals, creating official courses and training the teachers of their universities, so that in the foreseeable future they will be able to educate themselves without depending on external help like ours.
Currently, we provide assistance-based care for the visual health of refugees fleeing war or misery and of children in foster homes and orphanages in our country as well as in SOUTHERN countries.
We carry out it creating official courses – Masters and Postgraduate Diplomas – in the Faculty of Medicine and Optometry in the countries where we draw on. The courses are 80% PRACTICUM, take place in operating rooms, consultations and laboratories of their University Hospitals, and 20% THEORY, bespoke implementation of eSalud, platform eLearning for each Faculty to train them digitally.
We always cooperate agree with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations and acoording to WHO data and their International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB-WHO) and thrive in alignment to the Visual Health National Programs of the State Health Department in each country where we cooperate.
