(Question No. 633)


Ms Julie Bishop asked the Minister for Foreign Affairs, in writing, on 22 September 2011:

Since 24 November 2011, what sum has been spent on training eye health professionals, including ophthalmologists and ophthalmic nurses, to support local surgical capacity in the Asia-Pacific region.


Mr Rudd: The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

Noting that the date 24 November 2011 lies in the future, in line with the honourable member's other questions, since 24 November 2007, over $6 million has been spent on training eye health professionals, including ophthalmologists and ophthalmic nurses, to support local surgical capacity in the Asia-Pacific region.
