Since 1991 after the Civil War, the Government’s infrastructure has collapsed and the absence of National Eye Hospitals, the majority of ophthalmic elites have moved away from the country. We currently have professional ophthalmologists recently trained abroad, mainly from the University of Nairobi and obtained a Master of Medicine in Ophthalmology (MMed Ophthalmology) and after completing our training, we decided to return back to Somalia to serve our people and deliver a high Standard of Eye Health Care in Somalia which compares to the international standard.
