Evaluation of East Africa Child Eye Health Programme document


The Brien Holden Vision Institute (BHVI) implemented a four-year project on Child Eye Health (CEH) in East Africa (Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania) as part of a consortium. The project was supported by the Seeing is Believing programme, an initiative of Standard Chartered Bank. The programme aimed to i) improve the quality of eye health services and access for all children aged 0-15 years; ii) establish the School Eye Health Programme as a sustainable and efficient model of delivering eye health services to children; iii) improve the quality of early intervention and education of children with vision impairment by ensuring that the children receive necessary specialised educational support; iv) evaluate the model approaches for promoting child eye health in East Africa, document and publish the findings to inform future strategies and replication; v) embed Child Eye Health in the policies and programme work of the Ministries of Health and Education.
