A few years ago we started supporting the training of ophthalmic emergency personnel in northern Tanzania. Nurses receive three months of training in treating patients with eye complaints.
After the training, Medic ensures that they receive an ophthalmoscope and other ophthalmological instruments to put their new knowledge into practice
An exam was recently taken and we received the message below.
