CelebrateLAB 2019 emphasizes strengthening collaborations across West African borders and promoting public-private partnerships. Candace Eastman, CEO of Africabio Enterprises, said “CelebrateLAB is all about striving for better health outcomes.”GIZ, the German development organization is one of the event’s sponsors. GIZ works with the Liberian Ministry of Health and the National Public Health Institute of Liberia to strengthen laboratory and biomedical capacity through training, mentorship, and the establishment of a regional biomedical engineering workshop and microbiology lab.  During the event, GIZ will facilitate a workshop that will focus on product life cycle management, preventive  maintenance, share lessons learned, and emerging best practices for strengthening the workforce and supporting quality improvements in public laboratories and biomedical workshops.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window) Dr. Dougbeh Christopher Nyan , CEO, Shufflex Biomed: “we have the ingenuity to take Africa’s scientific destiny into our own hands for the benefit of humanity.” – Advertisement –last_img read more
