The low vision project is aimed at strengthening pediatric eye care for children aged 0 and 15 years in the northern districts of Malawi. The project links pediatric eye health with education and will be implemented over a period of 18 months. As a way of serving humanity, the project will help in identifying children with visual problems through eye screening, treatment and referral to district/ central hospitals where need be. All this is being made possible by the generous support of the American people through USAID.
