Enabling Quality Patient Care

HCP's model begins with bringing high-quality care to those who need it most. Globally, 43 million people are blind - 80% of this burden is treatable or preventable. Unfortunately, 90% of people suffering from vision loss live in low- and middle-income countries where a solution isn’t available.

HCP Co-founder Dr. Sanduk Ruit is credited as being the first Nepali doctor to perform modern cataract surgery with a sight restoring lens implant. He went on to adapt modern techniques for remote settings still maintaining the same high quality and low cost. This evolution in medical care for the poor became the basis for HCP’s patient care model that is now replicated in other low- and middle-income countries.

HCP outreach goals are to provide the highest quality eye care to as many people as possible.
