Diabetic Eye Disease: Building Capacity to Prevent Blindness


More than 75% of people with diabetes (PwD) live in low- and middle-income countries and recent global trends show an alarming increase in vision loss from diabetic retinopathy (DR), highlighting the need to build capacity and strengthen diabetic eye health services at national level. Diabetic eye health services within the NHS provide a unique insight into a health systems approach for the prevention of vision loss. This initiative aimed to share evidence and good practice for the prevention of visual loss from diabetic eye diseases globally via the open online course, ‘Diabetic Eye Disease’ (DED), for health professionals around the world working in local diabetic services.
