Prevention and Control of Diabetic Retinopathy in Pakistan: A Learning Review 2018


In view of the rising trend of diabetes and diabetic retinopathy (DR) in Pakistan, pilot projects on prevention and control of DR were implemented in different parts of the country over the
last ten years in collaboration with national government and non-government partners and international eye care partners, mainly Sightsavers and the Fred Hollows Foundation.
An initiative was taken by Sightsavers in collaboration with the National Coordinator, Pakistan National Eye Health Programme, and the Chairperson for the National Task Force on Diabetic Retinopathy to conduct a learning review of programme approaches for DR and determine strategies for the future decade.
