We are fundraising to reduce preventable eye disease in Ghana

Currently, there are 95 ophthalmologists serving entire population of 25 million people in Ghana. The Ghana National Blindness and Visual Impairment study conducted in 2015-2016 reported that the most common causes of blindness and severe visual impairment included cataract, glaucoma and uncorrected refractive. These previously mentioned causes are preventable and have cost-effective interventions.

The West African Health Foundation seeks to establish a Specialist Eye Institute as a regional center of excellence in Juaben, a town near Kumasi, the second largest city in Ghana, located in the Ashanti region.
