Bolstering public health laboratory networks

Institutionalizing quality in laboratory process, personnel and performance

Well-functioning laboratory systems—including clinical and pharmaceutical quality control laboratories—are fundamental to creating resilient health systems and fostering health security. We work to sustainably develop and strengthen regional and national laboratory networks to improve testing capacity and advance public health outcomes.

Robust clinical diagnostics and quality control laboratory systems help health care providers make informed treatment decisions, empower regulators to act, and allow for rapid identification of novel or drug-resistant diseases.
