Abstract

Abstract IAPB considers appropriate information as a vital resource in improving eye health in developing countries. IAPB consults panels of experts with considerable experience to identify good practices and assist with the compilation of Essential Equipment Lists. The first of the Essential lists launched is the IAPB Essential Equipment list for screening and surgery for Trachomatous Trichiasis (TT). The list suggests a minimum set of items to perform high quality TT surgery under conditions prevalent in most endemic areas.
