Project Description

UBASO Project

In the first expeditions, the ophthalmic examinations were carried out in the municipal centers, and the need for the creation of a permanent centre became clearer, if we wanted to provide a complete service to the population.

That is why we came up with the idea of creating the UBASO (Basic Unity of Ophthalmological Sanitary Assistance), as a specialized centre in ophthalmology during the expeditions to the area, as well as a reference point for other organizations.
This way, thanks to the rehabilitation of the rooms given by the city hall of Nouadhibou, on the 29th March 2010 we inaugurated the UBASO, located in the health center of the city, and already known by the entire population.
The data has been highly satisfactory since the center was opened in a continuous way two days a week, maintaining a direct contact with us for the analysis of those cases of major complexity, and it has created a waiting list of patients with surgical needs.
