EthiopiaFollowing you can find a selection of our projects in Ethiopia.Breast cancer awareness Breast cancer patients in Ethiopia often delay seeking treatment due to a lack of awareness. Even those that seek help early find that access to diagnostic and treatment services in most of the country’s healthcare facilities is limited, as is health professionals’ understanding of the disease. Cataract campaigns Cataracts are the leading cause of preventable blindness in Ethiopia, where more than 1.6 million people are legally blind, and a further 3.6 million suffer from vision impairment. With only 200 ophthalmologists serving a population of 120 million, there is a critical shortage of eye care professionals. Most are based in Addis Ababa, meaning Ethiopians in rural areas face daunting challenges accessing eye care.
