International Retinoblastoma Early Diagnosis Campaign into Amharic (the Official Language of Ethiopia)

The National Campaign for Early Diagnosis of Retinoblastoma in Brazil was initiated in September 2002 with the support of TUCCA and INCTR.
An important component of the campaign is a short film showing one of the most common signs of retinoblastoma. This film has already been translated into several languages, including Portuguese, English, French, Arabian, Italian, Spanish, Hindi, Swahili, Tagalog, Hebrew and more recently into Amharic , the official language of Ethiopia.

This initiative is cost effective and has helped greatly to increase both public and professional awareness of the importance of the early diagnosis of retinoblastoma, which in turn has resulted in saving lives and in some cases, the preservation of vision in affected eyes.
