Initially, T.E.S. concentrated its efforts on the definition and the launch of its collaborative project with Moka Eye Hospital (M.E.H.). To this end, members of T.E.S.’s board established close ties with the Mauritian authorities, as well as with ophthalmologists, surgeons and administrative personnel at MEH.


By January 2006, the T.E.S.-M.E.H. project was ready to receive and treat its first patients. Outpatient clinics and surgical procedures always actively involve local medical and surgical professionals, so as to ensure the effective transfer of surgical and medical know-how and expertise.


The number of medical experts wishing to contribute to T.E.S.’s mission is expanding. Initially recruiting in Geneva, doctors from abroad have joined the team.


As the figures show, the T.E.S.-M.E.H. project has been going from strength to strength ever since its inception.
