In the context of an EDCTP sponsored lab accreditation initiative of the African Society of Laboratory Medicine (ASLM), the project officer Dr Samba Diallo completed his initial site visit from 16 to 27 June 2014. A lot of progress was made during his stay: a quality assurance committee was set up, a meeting with key national and regional stakeholders was held and a detailed action plan was put in place.
Over the course of one year, CERMEL hopes to advance considerably on the course of laboratory accrediation according to SLIPTA guidelines.
