The Vision First Programme (VFP) in Ghana, supported by the Swiss Red Cross in collaboration with the Ghana Health Service and Ghana Red Cross Society, aims to establish a viable and sustainable blindness prevention program that increases capacity to serve the poor. Over the years, the support has reached over 400,000 people with quality clinical services and over 12,000 with heavily subsidised to absolutely free cataract surgical services in Ghana. In addition, over 18 clinics have been built and over 24 equipped. Over 1,800 skilled and non-skilled staff have also been trained. In line with its aim of reaching the poor, the Swiss Red Cross currently supports eye care services in two of the mostdeprived regions of Ghana: the Upper West region and the Northern region.
