LVPEI, with support from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), has initiated a comprehensive project for the early diagnosis and treatment of children with varied eye problems, including blindness, low vision and correctable refractive errors. The 19-month-long project will cover 125,000 children across 1500+ schools in the Siddipet and Sircilla districts, Telangana. The focus will be on using appropriate technology for screening and providing follow-up care to children and for monitoring and evaluation. For the long-term sustainability of this model, another important objective is the capacity building of all the stakeholders involved (such as school teachers, Aanganwadi workers, ASHA health workers, etc.).
