Daniel is Vision 2020 coordinator, World Health Organization, Prevention of Blindness and Deafness Office. He promotes, develops and implements blindness prevention projects throughout Africa.

A highly skilled ophthalmologist from Cameroon, Daniel’s passion is to see the elimination of avoidable blindness through comprehensive, effective, and self-sustaining nationwide quality eye-care for the poorest of the poor. He is also a cardiac surgeon/specialist, who studied in Switzerland and Scotland, and has an extensive knowledge of health issues in developing nations, including through his work in rural and remote areas of Africa. He coordinates 60 eye health programs around the world.
