Russia has one of the highest rates of people living with HIV and AIDS. Through the AIDS Eye Initiative, Seva has supported the training of infectious disease doctors at one of Russia’s foremost medical institutes on how to examine patient’s eyes using an indirect ophthalmoscope. This helps to detect blinding CMV Retinitis while it still can be prevented with medication. Health workers can also detect tuberculosis using this technique.
