Diabetic Retinopathy (DR) screening camps

Dear Colleagues,

I thank you and your partners and volunteers for agreeing to organize one or more Diabetic Retinopathy (DR) screening camps under the banner of AIOS, “Jyot se Jyot Jalao – STOP Blindness” in your areas.

A few points to be kept in mind:

1. Attached MoU will need to be signed and sent back to AIOS office. Kindly ensure patient consent is taken as specified. 

2. Cipla will provide you one banner with AIOS and Cipla logo and as many Educational pamphlets as you need for the DR screening camps. For additional banners, publicity material, appearances on TV or FM channels, request your State Ophthalmic Society or local NGOs like Rotary, Lions etc for assistance. 

3. Cipla can also help in talking to schools, colleges etc in case you wish to use these institutions as a venue. However, Cipla will not be able to pay for the venue nor can provide equipment like Ophthalmoscopes, Slit lamps, Fundus Cameras . You can get in touch with Zeiss for fundus camera support. If given adequate notice they will support with camera & technician. Kindly get in touch with Mr. Fuzail Khan at fuzail.khan@zeiss.com, at least a month before the scheduled camp date to avail the benefit of this. 

4. Cipla will also if requested, talk to Family Physicians, MD Specialists etc, informing them about the DR screening camps and request them to send their patients to the DR screening camps. 

Kindly connect with Mr. Nishant Bannore of Cipla for organising these camps. Email: nsiahnt.bannore@cipla.com

I thank you on behalf of AIOS and the thousands of diabetics who will gain awareness that timely eye check-ups can prevent blindness!
