Focus Birmingham have for many years aspired and worked to support people with sight loss in poorer countries across the globe. Our Sight Loss Support Lead, Andrew Miller, has been part of many training projects in countries such as Nepal, Bangladesh, Zambia, Jordan and Palestine.

In 2015 Focus Birmingham worked alongside other professionals from six different countries to write and develop training programmes for universities and hospitals in Jordan and Palestine. The project was funded by EU TEMPUS fund and supported by universities in UK, Netherlands and Hungary. Our team hosted training sessions for optometrists and ophthalmologists from both countries and developed resources for learning projects.
