WSF has established a partnership with the ophthalmic leadership in Alor Setar in Kedah state.  Between 2014-16 WSF has helped with the education of rural ophthalmic personnel in certain selected aspects of ophthalmology. 

In 2014 WSF supported an education course in orthoptic work which was conducted by Mrs Jane Tapley and Mrs Clare Carney from the UK. This teaching was very well received and in 2015 was repeated in Sabah state in Borneo. In 2015 WSF also supported the visits of two ocular oncologists from the UK.

In 2016 Mrs Jane Tapley conducted another orthoptic course in Alor Setar.
