Barriers to Use of Refractive Services in Mozambique

Published on 1 January 2015

This article seeks to understand what barriers may limit their uptake by the general population and inform decision making on improved service delivery.

Uncorrected refractive error remains a leading cause of visual impairment (VI) across the globe with Mozambique being no exception. The establishment of an optometry profession in Mozambique that is integrated into the public health system denotes significant progress with refractive services becoming available to the population. As the foundations of a comprehensive refractive service have now been established, this article seeks to understand what barriers may limit their uptake by the general population and inform decision making on improved service delivery.
