The Toolkit for Glaucoma Management in Africa is intended to provide guidelines and information for developing protocols and models of care, towards improving services for glaucoma care in Africa. The toolkit contains practical steps towards diagnosis of glaucoma, risk assessment for progression and management decisions, as well as specific guidance for treatment and referral to key resources.
This toolkit was made possible through the financial and technical support of Light for the World and funding from the Else Kröner-Fresenius-Stiftung. We are also grateful to Sightsavers for their valuable technical contribution and ongoing further work to pilot the toolkit. We sincerely appreciate ICO President Professor Neeru Gupta for her support and invaluable guidance. We gratefully acknowledge Mr Ian Murdoch of Moorfields Eye Hospital, London for his guidance and participation of the discussions especially during the formative workshop. We highly appreciate Professor Clare Gilbert, Co-Director, International Centre for Eye Health (ICEH) for her insights and encouragement towards the development of this toolkit. We are immensely grateful to Ms Svenja Schneider and Ms Margaux Roze des Ordons (both of Light for the World), whose professional administrative support have been invaluable in ensuring the commencement and completion of this toolkit.
