This week, the Government of India and the Public Health Foundation of India (PHFI) convened a three-day national summit to mark the conclusion of the Trust’s two five-year programmes in India to protect the sight of those with diabetes and of babies born prematurely.
A Life with Sight
India is home to the highest number of premature births in the world. Two decades ago, as efforts to improve neonatal care accelerated, more and more cases of blindness began to emerge. Dr Jalali, a world-class ophthalmologist, mother and mentor, has been leading the fight to tackle preventable blindness in premature babies across India. The Trust is honoured to work with Dr Jalali to ensure that every child born prematurely in India has the chance to see.
