Health Systems in developing countries - Who will carry the burden? – Symposium der Sektion DOG-Internationale Ophthalmologie
Many resource-poor countries have produced national plans for the prevention and treatment of blindness but often this has not created effective plans of action. Structures to allow these ideas to become reality are lacking in many areas. The symposium will give insight in strategies of local, national and international organizations to improve this situation.
