Dr. Moses Chirambo Elected to Parliament in Malawi
Our long time colleague, Prof. Moses Chirambo, MD was elected yesterday to Parliament from Rumphi District. Dr. Chirambo was the first Malawian ophthalmologist. IEF has supported Dr. Chirambo and the development of Malawi's eye care services since 1975. We established the Ophthalmic Assistant Training Program in 1980 and implemented successful vitamin A and river blindness control programs in the country. The eye clinics in Lilongwe and Blantyre were two of IEF's original sustainability partners. Dr. Chirambo has been a part of these successes all along the way. We are very proud of his achievements and thrilled at his election to Parliament. Congratulations Moses!
