A Seva Story

Sign-up for eUpdates!

Myanmar
Myanmar experiences one of the higher rates of HIV in Asia with approximately 200,000 people living with AIDS.1 Through the AIDS Eye Initiative, Seva supports the training of front line HIV doctors to examine their patients using an indirect ophthalmoscope. This advance enables them to detect and treat blinding CMV Retinitis. These trained health workers can also find tuberculosis using this technique. Seva is working with Myanmar’s leading ophthalmologists, the Government, and several non-Governmental eye care organizations to promote an effective national eye care plan.
