Webinar of Cost Management in Outreach
Sustainability of outreach activities is a challenge for most eye care providers. Involving the local community helps bring down the cost of outreach in terms of community based logistics and increases the productivity of camps in terms of outpatients registration and cataract admissions. Successful camps increase the efficiency of the staff and attract more sponsors.
Keeping the importance of such a vital topic in view, VISION 2020 INDIA held a webinar on Cost Management in Outreach on 18 January 2019. The hour long webinar was part of the Knowledge Hub activity. Mr R Meenakshi Sundaram, Senior Manager – Outreach – Aravind Eye Hospital was the resource person. The webinar was in collaboration with Cybersight/ Orbis.
