In January 2019 WSF will conduct its first teaching course in India at the HV Desai Hospital in Pune with whom, following two exploratory visits, we have established a working partnership. We will teach local ophthalmic officers who are a cadre of non- medical ophthalmic personnel.

When we visited Pune we had the opportunity of discussing with some of these officers their needs and the program we have constructed reflects those conversations.

Teachers will be from the UK and local experts from the HV Desai Hospital will also be actively involved in the four day course
