To comprehensively reinforce eye care services, toward the 2020 optical goal and also to meet the needs of the Department of Health Hanoi and Eye Hospital in Hanoi, The Fred Hollows Foundation (FHF) Viet Nam has conducted several projects that provided education and free glasses to school-age students.
The Research and Training Centre for Community Development (RTCCD) was contracted by FHF to design and implement a research study entitled ‘Attitudes of parents, students and teachers towards glasses use in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. This research aims to provide information, contributing to the improvement of services for early detection and care of refractive error in children and the development of community-based communication strategies. It specifically focuses on parents and students in the FHF’s project areas, (Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh city).
