For the Rotterdam Eye Hospital / Dutch Eye Care Network, one of main purposes of the Mission Trip was to link up with local Chinese public and private eye hospitals to explore their business model for (mobile) eye care and also to recruit for new potential members of the World Association of Eye Hospitals (WAEH). Your Op brought us in contact with different eye hospitals in Chengdu. Those trips were well prepared and we were received with all honours by the CEO or the President of the hospitals. Besides a fruitful presentation and discussion we were able to have an in-depth tour through the hospital, even all the way into their operating theatres. Our matchmaking will most surely result in a fruitful future cooperation as well an increased exchange of knowledge and best practices within the WAEH.
