An evaluation of a multi-partner development initiative in the establishment of an undergraduate optometry training program for Lusophone Africa: the Mozambique Eye Care Project Implementation Lessons

Diane Wallace – PhD Graduate
Dr. James Loughman – Supervisor

The research will evaluate three main aspects of the Mozambique Eye Care Project, a multi-partner development initiative in the establishment of an undergraduate optometry training program for Lusophone Africa.  The aim of the study is to review the relevance of, approach to and implementation of the project; and identify key learnings for the successful implementation of a quality, sustainable and appropriate optometric training program for the developing world.

The research will undertake:

  • Critical evaluation of the Multiple Entry Exit Model initially planned for this project and its suitability for a Mozambican / Lusophone Africa context.
  • Review of regional developmental and legislative frameworks for such an initiative, and critical success factors to multi-partner cross-sectoral collaborations.
  • Review programmatic challenges in the implementation of the project.
