Training of Primary Health Workers

Training of Primary Health Workers (PHWs) – This training has increased the capacity of PHWs from the health facilities to mobilise and provide primary level eye care services to their respective communities.

Integrating into local Primary Health Care systemsDr Erick Bakuza, the Singida Rural District Medical Officer when closing one of the sessions for the Primary Health Care Training, in his district said ‘I will continue to educate people and create awareness of eye health during community meetings and I am proud to close this training at my district. I believe it is a very good training in our effort to achieve the elimination of avoidable blindness in this district. I’m also thankful for Sightsavers and our donors for their support in my district’.
