Job Description:


HCP Cureblindness works to cure needless blindness with high-quality, cost-effective eye care in underserved areas of the world. Thirty-six million people are blind worldwide, yet 80% of this burden is treatable or preventable. Cataract is the largest cause of blindness affecting 17 million people, who could be cured with a 10-minute, $25 surgery. HCP is keenly focused on enduring solutions to avoidable blindness for under-resourced people and communities, not only providing critical care but strengthening local capacity to provide high-quality eye care to the underserved.

In 12 years, HCP has provided specialized training opportunities to ophthalmic personnel while directly supporting surgical outreach efforts leading to over 120,000 sight-restoring cataract surgeries until the end of 2021.  Over that time HCP has donated millions of dollars in specialized ophthalmic equipment and consumables for eye care services.

HCP is registered and accorded legal personality by Agency for Civil Society Organizations of Ethiopia with Registry number 4435 as Foreign Organization in accordance with the Civil Society Organization Proclamation No. 1113/2019.
