All India Institute of Medical Sciences
Dr. Rajendra Prasad Centre for OPHTHALMIC Sciences
The Dr. Rajendra Prasad Centre for Opthalmic Sciences (RP Centre) at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences was established in 1967 to provide quality and affordable opthalmic care to the citizens of India. The RP Centre plays an integral role in India's National Programme for Control of Blindness by providing key technical inputs from renowned faculty members for policy planning, which is backed through their various surveys and assessments under the Programme. They were also heavily involved in supporting and carrying out India's Vision 2020 plan through partnering with NGOs involved in eye care and developing software for the National Registry of Eye Care Infrastructure. We currently have one pediatric oncology project at the RP centre, focused on pediatric retinoblastoma patients.
Social Worker cum Data Manager
The pediatric oncology project at the RP Centre began after our work in the Pediatric Department in December 2014 when the Foundation was informed of the high numbers of retinoblastoma patients being treated at the RP Centre. Our local champion is Dr. Bhavna Chawla and we currently support one social worker cum data manager and one nurse for this project.
