In October 2019, GX was invited to attend the Cambodia National Workshop on Dissemination of the Results of the Rapid Assessment of Avoidable Blindness 2019 and Report on the Review of National Strategic Plan for Blindness Prevention and Control 2018-2020.
The event was attended by national eye health workers at all levels, as well as local and international NGOs implementing eye health programmes in the country. The workshop was an opportunity for experts and front-line workers to share key data, policy updates and lessons learned from successful eye-health programme implementation.
GX was formally introduced as a new partner of Cambodia. At the workshop, GX shared information about its upcoming Cataract Blindness Elimination Project in Prey Veng Province.
