INASCRS Leaderships steps in to help decreasing the number of blindness caused by cataract.
Thank you for joining us at INASCRS Surgical Skills Courses 2015, 21 November 2015 in Shangri-La Jakarta.
Each year cataracts are diagnosed in 210,000 Indonesians, or 0.1 percent of the total population of 250 million. In an effort to lower blindness, the government continues to depend on its CSR partners. Minister of Health Nila F. Moeloek in a speech during the inauguration of the Blindness Assessment and Development Center in Bogor this past Sunday, June 21st, said, "Cataract is the main cause of blindness in this country. Each year, cataract surgeries cover only 80,000 patients while the ratio of ophthalmologists in Indonesia is 2 in 325 doctors.
