Pakistan Urban Paediatric Eye Care Programme: mid-term review

Sightsavers’ Pakistan Country Office developed a five-year project on child eye health in slum areas of five urban cities: Karachi, Rawalpindi, Lahore, Multan and Faisalabad.

The project aimed to identify children with low vision and blindness, and provide eye care treatment such as surgery, spectacles, and low-vision devices. It also aimed to increase eye health awareness in schools and  communities, strengthen eye health systems by developing human resources, and establish effective programme management systems.

The purpose of the mid-term review was to assess the project achievements against targets to date, identify factors influencing programme delivery, capture key lessons learned, and recommend strategic directions to strengthen future programme design. Published January 2014.
