Target Group
Summary of Project Plan In 2000 Asian Eye Care started at Kien Giang Province with eye care, ophthalmic training and technical support on invitation of the Choray Hospital/Ministry of Health, Ho Chi Minh City. In 2008 AEC extended its collaborative program to Tay Ninh Province. In addition to the eye care/eye operations and training at various district hospitals in Tay Ninh province, AEC organized since 2010 postgraduate seminars for provincial ophthalmologists from the Mekong delta at the Choray Hospital, HCM City.
Background Blindness still represents a problem of public health significance in Vietnam. Although the overall (urban) situation improved over the past decade in terms of human resource capacity and ophthalmic facilities, the eye care coverage is still poor at district and community level of various provinces. Prevention and treatment of blindness is regarded as an area of high priority by the Ministry of Health, also because 80% of the blind can be cured and economically rehabilitated. Within this scope collaboration with AEC is regarded as relevant for further eye care development and AEC is invited to continue its support during the coming years.
Situation at start of project Per 1 May 2011 at Tay Ninh Province: - 858 cataract operations completed at Tay Ninh, Tan Chau, Go Dau; - 44 trainees/ophthalmologists were certified after completion of the AEC postgraduate seminar at Choray Hospital, Ministry of Health; -USD 41,200 donation to Tay Ninh province of SO-111W surgical microscope, ophthalmic materials, medicines, instruments and intraocular lenses.
Sustainability All AEC programs are focused on sustainability and meet the recommendations and guidelines of WHO/VISION 2020 and IAPB, i.e. eye care and disease control; human resource development and implementation of facilities and techniques. - Collaborative eye care service and eye operations at Tay Ninh contributes to the reduction of backlog of curable blind men, women and children; - AEC hands-on training and postgraduate seminars of Vietnamese doctors are essential in upgrading the skills and expertise in ophthalmology. In 2010 the Ministry of Health decided in 2010 to reward certified trainees with accreditation points. - The sustainability of eye care service at Tay Ninh has been improved by various AEC donations such as a SO-111W portable operation micrsocope, surgical instruments and materials, medicines and intraocular lenses.
