7 million people in Indonesia are living with diabetes, and this number is expected to increase in the next decades. The Indonesian healthcare system is currently ill-equipped to provide the necessary care for diabetic retinopathy.
This project will be implemented by Helen Keller International, in partnership with the University of Indonesia, the Rumah Sakit Cipto Magunkusumo Hospital, the Indonesian Ophthalmology Association, the Indonesian Society of Endocrinology, and the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center. This project will strengthen health care capacity by training health care professionals, raising awareness, developing a protocol for the referral of diabetes patients, and implementing mobile vision screening camps to serve the poorest and most underserved populations.
