This is to mark the launch of the outreach program to be rolled out in Papua New Guinea.
In hopes to reduce statistics of avoidable blindness in PNG, PIH has partnered with Laila Foundation to offer this service for free.
The team, through Laila Foundation, will be bringing in teams who provide high volume cataract surgery.
This project will be led by PIH ophthalmologist, Dr Amyna Sultan, and Dr Vivek Jairaj, consultant ophthalmologist.
According to Dr Sultan, the rural cataract outreach program should commence before the year ends.
