Eye Health

Prevention of Blindness / Eye Health Care Programmes

CBMs work in eye health involves working through partners around the country as well as the Government. CBM supports the Kenya National Eye Care Plan in disease control (Cataract, Trachoma, Glaucoma, Childhood Blindness, and Diabetes).

CBM is also committed to human resource development at all levels of the health care structure. Additionally, the organisation supports appropriate technology; the capacity development of partners and local procurement agencies to provide essential materials and equipment for medical eye care programmes.

Since 1998, CBM has put a heavy investment into the establishment of low vision services in Kenya through developing clinical, educational and rehabilitative supporting structures (comprehensive low vision services). Comprehensive low services are now being increasingly taken over by respective government ministries.

CBM supports district eye care planning under the umbrella of VISION 2020.
