How should I use the templates?
On a number of frames on situation analysis, links to a specially designed
spreadsheet are provided, in which the user can enter area-specific
data on prevalence and causes of blindness, output data of eye-care
services over the past five years, population data, and available human
and infrastructure resources. The underlying spreadsheet will calculate
the total needs, the output and utilization of human and infrastructure
resources during the past few years and the required output to control
blindness and visual impairment in the area. When there are differences
between the current and the required output, eye-care managers have
to determine whether increasing the efficiency of the existing facilities
can bridge those gaps, or whether additional human resources, infrastructure,
or equipment are required. This spreadsheet may help in the formulation
of intervention priorities, objectives, and targets of VISION 2020 action
Other templates for time analysis, budgeting, Logical Framework Analysis
and Vision 2020 action plans are included as examples in Excel 95 and
Word 95 format. These templates can be copied to the user’s computer
