There are 7 million blind in China.

WSF has been visiting China over a number of years in partnership with other charities and we have now established our own teaching partnership with the ophthalmic department of the Mianyang Central Hospital in Sichuan province.

Primary care work there is conducted by doctors and in October 2019 we held a two-day course on diabetes and the eye for junior ophthalmologists in training and some junior physicians.

We intend to extend our work in China.
