Developments and achievements of the Albanian Ophthalmological Association over the years

Developments and achievements of the Albanian Ophthalmological Association over

In a general overview, it turns out that in our country, the community of ophthalmologists or ophthalmologists is relatively small compared to many other specialties of Albanian medicine. Since 1992 and continuing, the majority of Albanian ophthalmologists, who work inside or outside our country, as well as foreign ophthalmologists, but who have been working for years in our country, have exercised their professional activity by being organized in the Ophthalmological Association Albanian (SHOSH). The Albanian Ophthalmological Association (SHOSH) was founded in 1992, according to the legal procedures of the time. Its reorganization and reconstruction in 2010 became necessary due to legal changes: "For non-profit organizations" in our country. Based on the decision of the Management Board of the Association, The Statute and the new Act of Foundation of SHOSH, dated 24.02.2010, after evaluating the documentation and the corresponding request of the Presidency of SHOSH for registration as a Legal Entity of the National Ophthalmological Association, the Court of the Judicial District of Tirana decided to accept our request and the registration of her as a Legal Person, with decision no. 2795, dated 08.03.2010. The reorganization and reconstruction that took place in 2010 had to do with some non-essential changes, mostly legal, preserving the name and the previous historical continuity, without affecting in any way its essence, purpose and objectives, for which it was founded in 1992. As a result, the registration as a Legal Person of the National Ophthalmological Association with the relevant name, with an unlimited extension of its activity, made possible the realization of the logo as well as the new digital seal with the inscription: "Albanian Ophthalmological Association", SHOSH, in continuation of the previous seal. SHOSH has always had and will have in the future as the goal and objective of its activity: "Raising the technical and scientific level of its membership, to spread the advanced experience of local and foreign colleagues, increasing the level of clinical and diagnostic work, to promote the initiative for research and scientific work, to protect the rights of its members, as well as to create connections and cooperation with similar foreign Associations". The total number of Albanian and foreign ophthalmologists living in our country currently turns out to be 167 people. Of these 62 people are retired or left for various reasons, despite the fact that they can continue their free profession as ophthalmologists, while 14 other people are specialist doctors for ophthalmologists, at the University Ophthalmic Clinic of Tirana. In conclusion, we find that there are 153 Albanian and foreign ophthalmologists, including all age groups, who continue to work in state and private institutions of our country. For various reasons, which are not worth analyzing, it turns out that until now, based on the association's statute, there are 102 members of SHOSH, so until now only 67% of the total number of young and old ophthalmologists are members active and permanent member of the Association. From 1992-2009, SHOSH organized several meetings, special clinical symposia, as well as 9 important National Scientific Conferences with different scientific and social themes. From 2010 onwards, until 2023, the Albanian Ophthalmological Association (SHOSH) has functioned and acted as a national and unique organization of its kind, in the role of a special national union of Albanian ophthalmologists, of our country and neighboring countries and the region. By cooperating in the framework of a national union, it became possible to organize annual national scientific activities, almost every calendar year, as well as to achieve a transition to a higher and better level in the organization of national scientific activities by passed from the level of conferences to the next level, in the organization of national and scientific congresses. From the analysis of the development of activities, it results that, since 2010 and until 2023, 8 National Congresses of the Albanian Ophthalmological Association have been organized and developed with complete success in our country. During the organization of national activities over the years, special importance has been given to cooperation with the neighboring countries of the region, especially with Kosovo, Serbia, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Italy and Greece. In continuation of these activities, we must emphasize that, on May 26-28, 2023, at the Tirana International Hotel, in Tirana, the VIII Congress of SHOSH was successfully held. In this activity, as in the previous activities, there was a wide national participation, with doctors specializing in ophthalmology and other specialties from our country, as well as from neighboring countries and the region such as Kosovo and North Macedonia. Many Albanian and foreign ophthalmologists, who are or are not members of the Association (SHOSH), who work in Albania or abroad, from neighboring countries and the region, from state and private clinics, have participated in our national scientific activities of SHOSH , without any kind of difference of different ages, professional level, scientific, pedagogical or administrative and state titles that they have had. It is important to emphasize that, in our annual national activities, the participation of ophthalmologists from Kosovo has been visible, as a massive participation and well organized by the Presidency of the Association of Ophthalmologists of Kosovo. In almost every activity of ours, the fact is already known that, since 2010, SHOSH has its own specific seal and logo, as well as the Web-Site included in Albanian and English: www.shosh-al. com, in which the necessary information can be obtained from interested persons at any time about everything that is going to happen. After the official opening of the SHOSH website, from 2010 onwards, the gradual official recognition of the said association by similar associations of neighboring countries and the region, of Europe and the USA became possible, as well as the interest their special to cooperate with the Presidency of SHOSH, especially in relation to the development of our national scientific activities, with the aim of raising the level of continuing education of our membership, of SHOSH. The American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) has shown immediate and special interest in the activity and progress of SHOSH since 2010. On May 24, 2011, AAO provided interested SHOSH membership with free access, regarding the provision of scientific information from the AAO bookstore in its education network "Education One Network". After a fruitful continuous cooperation, on August 12, 2013, the official agreement between AAO and SHOSH was finally realized, signed by the representatives of both parties, with the aim of ensuring cooperation for the ongoing education of the membership of our ophthalmic association. Finally, on September 27, 2013, SHOSH membership finally added the right to receive weekly via their email addresses the informative e-newsletter "Academy Express-European Edition", which continues to arrive weekly and without any interruption until our days. At that time, i.e. on September 27, 2013, in a short information sent to the Head of SHOSH, the leaders of AAO and the Management Board of the "Academy Express" magazine said: "We are very pleased to announce that the Albanian Ophthalmological Association (SHOSH) has joined the European Edition of Academy Express- (European Edition-Academy Express). As a result, you will benefit from the latest scientific data distributed from the entire surrounding region." In 2015, SHOSH was officially accepted as a member of the European Ophthalmological Society (SOE). In June 2016, in Belgrade, Serbia for the first time in the history of Albanian ophthalmology. During 2017, there was a special interest of the International Council of Ophthalmology (International Council of Ophthalmology - ICO) to create connections and cooperation with SHOSH. After several translation procedures, the first meeting of the Presidency of SHOSH with the representatives of the ICO, was carried out on June 11, 2017 in the premises of the organization of the SOE Congress 2017 in Barcelona, ??Spain. As can be seen from the above data of the events and activities of SHOSH, the qualitative developments and successful achievements that occurred over the years, but especially during the years 2010 - 2023, are visible and tangible to everyone.
