Reference: Dr. Konyama, K. (1981). Prevention of Blindness in Nepal (Public Health Ophthalmology in Nepal) - Assignment Report, WHO. URL-http://apps.who.int/iris/ A national blindness control project was launched in Nepal recently. It started with a sample survey on the prevalence of blindness for collecting reliable data on major blinding conditions as well as other information necessary for programming. The first phase, consisting of a community survey, has been completed, and manpower development activities, along with the strengthening of eye centres in different parts of the country, are to be taken up as the second phase. The project's goals are set at the eradication of 90% of curable blindness within five years in a country with difficult terrain and a population of 14 million of different ethnicity, life-styles and environment.
