Qualified on the content I am responsible for because: I have been the project director of the present evaluation of the programs that have been implemented in two communities to improve access to eye care among people most at risk for glaucoma. Among my scientific interests has been the use of evaluation theory and methods in the planning and implementation of public health programs so as to optimize intervention benefits and prolong sustainability of the intervention in that context.
