Zimbabwe: Improving Access to Eye Care

In 2017, HCP plans to conduct a high-volume cataract surgical workshop in conjunction with the Victoria Falls Hospital in the Matabeleland North district of Zimbabwe. This is the first time we have organized such an event with a partner in Zimbabwe. HCP will provide the equipment and supplies as well as volunteer surgical staff who will work to provide hundreds of surgeries over the course of a week. During the campaign, volunteer physicians will train local staff in outreach management and surgical techniques, and all equipment purchased for the event will be donated to the Victoria Falls Hospital for future use.
