Project Report | Apr 29, 2019
Cataract Outreach in Sisaut, Nepal

By Angelia Rorison | Communications Manager

This Himalayan Cataract Project (HCP) cataract outreach in Nepal provided surgery to over 546 people in a rural area in Sisaut, Nepal. A team from HCP flagship partner, Tilganga Institute of Ophthalmology managed the outreach in the Sarlahi District village in the Janakpur Zone of south-eastern Nepal. This outreach marks the first high-volume outreach of the year, in addition, an outreach in Ethiopia was held simultaneously by our partners at Woldia Hospital who performed 261 surgeries. 

Based in Kathmandu, Tilganga is led by Himalayan Cataract Project Co-Founder Dr. Sanduk Ruit, and serves as the Himalayan Cataract Project’s (HCP) base of operations in Asia. While the center operates independently, HCP is closely involved in Tilganga’s infrastructure, outreach and educational programs.
