Challenge

Currently Baotou has no pediatric eye care capability and people's living standards are well below the poverty line. Besides, village doctors are not well-trained. To cope with this problem, ORBIS will partner with a local hospital to establish a professional pediatric eye care centre that can provide quality and affordable services. Also, ORBIS will establish a network of 10 vision centres that can extend paediatric eye care services to poor people. Training will also be provided for doctors.
