In Kabgayi, more than 4,500 people underdo a cataract surgery every year

Eye care all over the country

Our clinic in Kabgayi is regarded as a point of reference for ophthalmology in Rwanda. Every year, more than 4,500 people undergo cataract surgery there. However, Kabgayi is also a training centre: ophthalmological nurses are trained there who will then work all over the country. Our next objective is to improve medical care in other regions of Rwanda.
