World Prematurity Day: How one woman is transforming the future of thousands

The Trust's latest film, A Life with Sight tells the story of Dr Subhadra Jalali – a world-class ophthalmologist, mother and mentor - who has led the way in the fight to tackle blindness in premature babies since cases were first identified in India over two decades ago.
