Schools are among the best places to promote early treatment of eye diseases. In Ghana, a broad working group is raising awareness of eye health and how to treat eye diseases in schools and communities. The public-private group includes government officials from health, education, and women and children's affairs, as well as WHO and LIONS representatives.
