Quality Assurance (QA)
We are working with the Ministry of Public Health to build the capacity of laboratory personnel on Lab QA and QA of HIV Rapid Testing (RT). Over 1,200 labs have been enrolled in the QA programme with over 3345 health personnel trained. The training has been extended to include non-laboratory personnel involved in HIV RT. On-site trainings are also carried out to support Continuous Quality Improvement in the diagnosis, linkage, treatment and management of patients. An effective sample referral system has been put in place for a safe and timely transportation of samples from reference labs to the peripheral labs and results from reference labs to peripheral labs.
