On the 18th and 19th of February a training/recycling workshop about basic notions of ophthalmology for health agents from the districts of Bandiagara and Koro was held.

In the workshop, which was given by the ophthalmologist from the Hospital Sominé Dolo and organized by Eyes of the world, personnel from the community health centers and district ophthalmologic medical assistants received instruction. The objective of this training is that in these districts ocular problems can be detected and, if a surgical intervention or permanent treatment be required, referred to the ophthalmologic services at Mopti and Bankass
