Diabetic Retinopathy Screening Programme

In 2020, we continued our almost decade-long screening and research into Diabetic Retinopathy across the oPt. Its current iteration is a screening service in Gaza which screened over 1,900 patients in spite of the Covid-19 pandemic. Our findings from this study will help us to understand barriers to both diagnosis and management of diabetes and to develop a new comprehensive programme to combat this growing epidemic.
