 The Government of Japan handed over Medical Equipment for Diabetic Retinopathy patients to Kirtipur Eye Hospital in Kathmandu today. 

The medical equipment has been installed with the support of USD 154,100 (approximately NPR 18.35 million) under the Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects (GGP) of the Government of Japan.

On this occasion, Ambassador of Japan to Nepal KikutaYutaka emphasized that without proper medical equipment, patients are not able to be diagnosed and treated as needed. In this regard, people suffering from diabetic retinopathy, one of the most pressing diseases in Nepal's modern society, will receive better medical services with the medical equipment granted by the project. 

Kirtipur Eye Hospital was established in 2017 by Nepal Netra Jyoti Sangh (NNJS), a pioneer in eye care services for 45 years, and which serves more than 20,000 patients annually, including 2,400 with diabetic retinopathy.
