The spectacle compliance of school children in Malawi, Nigeria and Pakistan study was commissioned and supported by the World Bank via a school health project that was sponsored by the Global Partnership for Education.
This was a two-phases longitudinal, observational study, conducted in Malawi, Nigeria and Pakistan, designed to determine:
- The prevalence of vision impairment and uncorrected refractive error among schoolchildren.
- Spectacle compliance at three months among school going children with significant refractive error.
- Identify barriers to spectacle compliance in school going children.
