Indian Eye Institute, J.F.K To Collaborate

MONROVIA, October 30 (LINA) - President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has secured an agreement on behalf of the John F. Kennedy Medical Center with the L V Prasad Eye Institute in New Delhi, India to create added value to the services of the two entities.

The L V Prasad Eye Institute (LVPEI), a non-for-profit, non-governmental, public-spirited comprehensive eye care institution, entered into an agreement with the JFK Medical Center to create added value to their services through synergies, including the integration and cross-transfer of medical skills, knowledge and expertise.

L V Prasad Eye Institute (LVPEI) was established at Hyderabad, India in 1986-87.

According to a dispatch, the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed in New Delhi during a meeting attended by the Liberian President and the founder and chair of LVPEI, Dr. Gullapalli N. Rao, to facilitate the creation of a comprehensive self-sustaining Eye Health Initiative in Liberia.

Under this initiative, L V Prasad Eye Institute will provide inputs in developing highly customized eye care services in Liberia based on needs, feasibility and suitability of the services at the JFK Medical Center.

In addition, LVPEI will also provide guidance and assistance in human resource planning, recruitment, training and also assist the JFK Medical Center in developing and implementing country-wide community eye health programs.

The L V Prasad Eye Institute pursues cutting edge research and offers training in human resources for all levels of ophthalmic personnel.

It has been designated as a World Health Organization collaborating center for the prevention of blindness and has been a pioneer in developing high impact eye health models not only in India, but also in developing countries, the dispatch said.
