  1. Who will operate on Africa's 3 million curably blind people ?

    Article - En anglais

    About half the 6 million blind people in sub-Saharan Africa have surgically curable cataract.

    The available manpower and resources can only provide services for less than 10% of the new blind cataract patients each year, and little is being done for the estimated 3 million « cataract backlog ».

    A serious limiting factor to the development of prevention of blindness programmes is lack of trained manpower.
