Tungipara (Gopalganj). May 22, 2024 (BASS): Eye treatment services are being made community based in 30 upazilas of 9 districts including Gopalganj. Common eye problems will be provided from community clinics. Critical patients will be identified and referred to the focal person. They will refer patients to Gopalganj Sheikh Fazilatunnecha Eye Hospital and Training Institute for better treatment. The entire procedure will be supervised in a room at the eye hospital. Those patients will get advanced medical care from this hospital.
Gopalganj Sheikh Fazilatunnessa Eye Hospital and Training Institute Director Prof. Nahid Ferdausi gave this information.
The officer joined the post of director of Sheikh Fazilatunnecha Eye Hospital and Training Institute on March 23, 2022. Since then he started working with Da Sheikh Hasina Initiative. Then in July of the same year, he was assigned the responsibility of supervision and monitoring of community clinics in the southwestern region of the country. Since then he started working with community clinics. A 3-day conference was held at Sheikh Fazilatunnessa Eye Hospital last February with doctors from India and Bangladesh on community level eye treatment. He has already published research papers on community clinics. He has been awarded The Sheikh Hasina Initiative Gold Medal for his special contribution to health services. He received this medal from President Mohammad Sahabuddin on the Community Clinic Day on April 30. After receiving this medal, the officer’s desire to work with the community clinic has increased. So he has planned to make eye treatment services community based in 30 upazilas of 9 districts including Gopalganj.
Professor Dr. Nahid Ferdausi said, from the second week of June, 1,500 CHCPs of community clinics in 30 upazilas of Gopalganj, Faridpur, Rajbari, Madaripur, Shariatpur, Khulna, Bagerhat, Narail and Pirojpur districts have been trained on primary eye care. will be given. In this they will provide primary eye care services at the community clinic. In addition, they will refer the critical patients to the focal persons of the upazila and district hospitals. The focal persons will select some patients from among these patients and send them to the eye hospital. The entire procedure will be supervised in a room in the eye hospital. We will prevent cataract blindness and other types of blindness through community based eye care. This will bring a large population under eye care services through community clinics. If this is successful, we will take the initiative to treat mother and child patients in this way.
