Care and maintenance of equipment

Purchasing equipment is the beginning – not the end – of a procurement relationship with a vendor or supplier. Many pieces of good-quality equipment lie unutilised due to lack of adequate support and maintenance networks, especially in developing countries.

The IAPB Standard List has put together a rich source of material that will help in the maintenance and care of ophthalmic equipment. These videos and guides have been put together by organisations with extensive experience and knowledge of working in some tough environments the world over.
