Support Group for Parents of Premature Children with ROP

A core group comprising parents of children with ROP, eye doctors, vision rehabilitation specialists and faculty from Public Health Foundation of India (PHFI), is spearheading the efforts to register the entity ‘Support Group for Parents of Premature Children with ROP’ with the state as well as the central government. The aim is to garner public support and raise awareness about ROP and thereby give voice to the parents and caregivers of these children.

The first two meetings of this group were organized on 1 February and 15 March by the doctors from Sarojini Devi Eye Hospital, Niloufer Hospital and LVPEI. They were held at LVPEI Hyderabad and were supported by PHFI.
