National Survey on Human Resource & Infrastructure

National Survey on Human Resource & Infrastructure for Eye Care Services in India

Dr. R.P. Centre for Ophthalmic Sciences, AIIMS in collaboration with NPCB & VI, ORBIS, Vision 2020 and AIOS has taken on the mammoth task of mapping all eye hospitals in India.

With the aid of a nation-wide survey, we aim to create a database of manpower and existing eye care services across the country.

This database will be linked to a user friendly Geographical Information System (GIS) software. GIS is a new-age technology used in organization and management of geographical data. Public health implications of GIS include disease surveillance and control, mapping of population and health resources, assessing resource allocation and planning & targeting interventions.

We plan to use this technology for mapping of human resources and infrastructure in eye care services across India, so that everyone can access this information in any part of the country. This information will serve as a guide to patients, professionals and policy makers.
