Sightsavers Hopes to Prevent Blindness Through Working Medicine with GiveWell

800 million people with disabilities are being ignored and Sightsavers is working hard to help them. With programs from Sightsavers and their partners, they are able to connect the dots to change this in areas that are largely forgotten about. Sightsavers knows that it is about the connections they make that helps them achieve their goals.

 

Sightsavers has a mission to save the sights of the people living in areas who are afflicted by blindness and other vision issues caused by problems that are preventable and even treatable. They partner with organizations, governments, and locals of the areas to distribute the education and supplies that are needed to make a difference. By working together Sightsavers has been able to save the vision of thousands of children and adults.

 

One of Sightsavers’ main focuses is the treatment of neglected tropical diseases in countries who do not have reliable access to modern medicine. Based out of the United Kingdom, Sightsavers has multiple programs that they implement to achieve these aspirations. Blindness is devastating to those who it effects and can prevent them from earning their own income and living their life to the fullest without pain.

 

One of the latest initiatives of Sightsavers involves distributing deworming products to children in the non-developed areas that they work in. While there may not be much data yet about how deworming can improve the lives of those who it is distributed to, there is still evidence that it greatly reduces the worm load. Sightsavers is working with GiveWell in order to distribute this medication on a much greater scale. With preliminary studies showing at least some level of positive outcomes after smaller distributions, the low cost of the treatment has led them to see what happens on a larger scale.

 

Sightsavers and GiveWell have found it difficult to estimate what the exact cost of the initiatives will be as there are many factors that they cannot take into account yet. An early estimate suggests that it will only cost $1.19 to distribute the treatment to each child involved. For Sightsavers themselves, they estimate that they will be needing around $.55 per dose as they are expecting to receive help from different government organizations both locally and around the world as well as doses of the medication donated to their organization. They predict that there will be funding issues for their program that they hope will be remedied by donations in the next year.
