Welcome to the Diabetic Retinopathy Network (DR-NET) website

This website enables DR-NET members to participate in online capacity-strengthening and training activities delivered by the International Centre for Eye Health at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine and its international partners.

It serves as a platform for hosting DR-NET meetings and enhancing collaboration and sharing of information within and between participating countries. It also provides information, resources and publications relevant to health workers who are involved in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with diabetes and DR globally.

Our Mission

DR-NET was established to reduce unnecessary blindness from diabetic retinopathy in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs), through policy engagement, capacity-strengthening activities and context-specific research. 

These are leading to the establishment and provision of sustained, high-quality DR screening and treatment services to prevent blindness in people with diabetes in LMICs in the coming decades.
