Ms. Yaa Serwaa Akwaboah, an ophthalmic nurse from  Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) in Ghana, is at Lions Aravind Institute of Community Ophthalmology in India to attend a three-month training course in pediatric ophthalmology.

Pediatric cataract care requires specialized care and advanced training for practitioners. HCP has been working with partners at KATH, ORBIS and the Moran Eye Center to increase KATH’s pediatric capacity.
