“TAP is really useful… we can now screen and provide glasses for reading, and cut down waiting times for the specialist clinic.”


Nurse Manager, Papua New Guinea

“TAP helps you look for different problems when a patient visits you. It gives you the knowledge to find new solutions. My patient came for a walking problem and I was also able to help him with his vision.”
