On Monday 17 April 2006, the International Organization for Migration (IOM), through the Swedish Medical Programme, donated medical equipment for advanced eye surgery, worth 30,000 KM, to the Sarajevo Eye Clinic at the University Clinic Center Sarajevo. The equipment has enabled the doctors at the clinic to perform advanced eye surgeries, especially vitreoretinal surgery, that used to require treatment abroad. In addition to donations of equipment, doctors from Bosnia and Herzegovina have received training in Sweden and Swedish specialists have visited Bosnia and Herzegovina to conduct training sessions and perform surgeries with local doctors.

IOM, through the Swedish Medical Programme at the University Hospital in Linköping, has been building the capacity of both the Sarajevo and Banja Luka ophthalmology clinics for nearly a decade.
