ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia/APO/ – The importance of laboratory research and quality diagnostics cannot be overstated, especially at a time when Africa is challenged by disease outbreaks. Opportunities to publicize research findings among a global audience are uniquely available to African scientists, researchers and policymakers at the second international conference of the African Society for Laboratory Medicine (ASLM).
The ASLM conference, ASLM 2014, is a platform for the global laboratory community to share best practices, acquire knowledge and debate innovative approaches for tackling major health challenges. The conference theme is “Innovation and Integration of Laboratory and Clinical Systems: Reshaping the Future of HIV, Tuberculosis (TB), Malaria, Influenza, Neglected Tropical Diseases and Emerging Pathogens in Africa.”
ASLM 2014 will be held in Cape Town, South Africa, on 30 November – 4 December 2014, and it will serve to highlight ASLM’s pan-African efforts to improve quality patient care and disease control through improved laboratory systems and networks in Africa.
Laboratories play a strategic role in global health security...Sharing best practices allows the African health community to capitalize on the historical movement to improve laboratory efficiency, lower costs and develop sustainable local capacity. Through events such as ASLM 2014, we can expand our knowledge and charter new territory to advocate for the critical role and advancement of laboratory medicine in Africa.- Dr. Tsehaynesh Messele, ASLM Chief Executive Officer.
