HA NOI (VNS)— The Ha Noi Department of Health will provide eye check-ups for about 10,000 people aged 45 and above in the capital city's Quoc Oai district until September 2015, in co-ordination with Helen Keller International (HKI).
The activity is part of an HKI project helping vision entrepreneurs by establishing community-based eye care systems in rural communities. It is funded by Grand Challenges Canada.
HKI will train visual professionals to perform screenings and conduct communication activities to raise public awareness about vision deterioration. — VNS
