ORDA CBM project aggressively working on to control blindness!


The national Survey on blindness, low vision and trachoma in Ethiopia by the Federal Ministry of Health (2006) stated that eye problems have been recognized worldwide as one of the major public health problems, particularly in developing countries where 90% of the blind live. International actions to prevent avoidable blindness have been gaining momentum over the last decade. According to the WHO about 37 million people are blind and 124 million people have low vision worldwide. VISION 2020: The Right to Sight is a global initiative of the World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB) in collaboration with international non-governmental organizations launched in 1999 with the aim of eliminating the major causes of avoidable blindness by the year 2020. About 75% of all blindness worldwide is avoidable and is mainly caused by cataract and trachoma.
