The Glaucoma in the Bantu Population an Epidemiologic Study
Krüger H.1, Schittkowski M.1, Hopkins A.2, Kayembe D.3, Guthoff R.1
Purpose: The project VISION 2020 was founded by CBM and other NGOs to reduce the number of blind people until the year 2020 to 50%. In the region central-Africa the glaucoma is the third frequent cause of avoidable blindness. Because of missing epidemiologic data this disease could not be involved in the project VISION 2020.
