The module included lectures, study visits, practical case studies and interaction with real-life politicians when simulating funding requests for ophthalmic care (see attached programme).

The evaluation was very favourable (see attached evaluation) and in particular, the participants appreciated interaction with real-life politicians and the sessions on advocacy.

The next module is scheduled for San Francisco, CA in January 2007 when the participants will meet their American and Pan-American counterparts. The participants have been requested to initiate a small project by April 2007. Three of these projects will be selected for oral presentation at graduation in conjunction with the 2007 SOE Congress in Vienna, Austria.

I would like to express my sincere gratitude for generous support provided by an initial grant from Bausch & Lomb and specific module grants from Alcon, Allergen and Santen.
