The CHEER project has been a far reaching, multi-stakeholder and comprehensive project including four international non-government organisations, that aimed to raise the levels of child eye health within Shanxi province.
Training was delivered at all levels to improve knowledge, increase understanding and enhance skills for the best possible vision for all children. Eye health promotion was delivered in several different locations, including village communities, schools, rehabilitation centres and hospitals. The engagement of many sectors and the subsequent networks created between them, has resulted in robust referral pathways for the prompt referral of identified cases to the appropriate eye health professionals in the most convenient location.
