VFAN Partners with Brien Holden Vision Institute
Vision for a Nation Foundation (VFAN) has partnered with the Brien Holden Vision Institute (BHVI) to conduct a feasibility assessment in Ghana.
The research will assess the potential for developing primary eye care services in the West African nation and will involve consultations with Ghana’s Ministry of Health. Dr Anne Ebri, BHVI’s Sub-Regional Manager for West Africa, is leading the research.
The research is part of VFAN’s efforts to scale its ground-breaking Rwanda programme to other countries in Africa and Asia. It is being funded by UBS Optimus Foundation as a component of its $1.7 million grant for VFAN’s Rwanda programme.
VFAN’s CEO Tom Rosewall comments: “We are delighted to be working with the Brien Holden Vision Institute – one of the world’s leading eye care organisations. Their research will identify opportunities to strengthen primary eye care in Ghana and support our ambitious plans to scale our ground-breaking approach to other emerging nations around the world.”
