The NGO Centro Cristiano de Servicios Médicos runs an eye care programme as part of the “Hospital Elías Santana”.
This medical centre is the most important of its kind in the Dominican Republic, located in the largest slum area of Santo Domingo, where poor patients from all over the country receive eye treatment.
The programme includes an important training centre for ophthalmologists from Latin America and other regions.
The prevention of blindness programme has extended its coverage with satellite clinics.
