I visited Pakistan to meet some of our partners firsthand. At one hospital, I met an eye doctor who I’d met several years earlier. We had supported her to access pediatric training, so she could provide specialist eye care for children.

That extra training meant she’d been recognized as a more senior doctor and had been offered a leadership position in the hospital, meaning she now had a say in a range of hospital decisions.

Being passionate about ensuring women and children received the care they needed, she was taking the opportunity to use her voice to get the resources needed.
