Global Health Partnerships Kicks off 2013 With a Whirlwind of Activity

CLSI’s Global Health Partnerships (GHP) team hit the ground running in 2013 with staff and volunteers scheduling a dozen activities in seven countries. The intense schedule is expected to continue to the end of June as new workshops, meetings, and laboratory assessments are scheduled in countries throughout Africa and Central Asia.

“Due to funding delays, some activities were postponed,” said GHP Vice President Karen McClure, PhD, MLS(ASCP), SBB. “Now that funding has been approved, we are aggressively moving forward to get back on track with our scopes of work in a number of countries.”


The work that has been planned for the beginning of the year includes laboratory mentorships and gap analysis in Tanzania, a laboratory directors’ workshop and mentorship program in Ethiopia, and a quality management system workshop and laboratory assessments in Kazakhstan. CLSI Board of Directors President Mary Lou Gantzer, PhD, FACB, will travel to Kenya in late January with McClure and GHP Director Frances Ingersoll to work with the Kenya Medical Technicians and Technologists Board to develop validation and verification protocols for medical laboratory equipment and reagents.

CLSI is seeking corporate and foundation support for GHP’s laboratory quality improvement programs. If your company is interested in learning more about GHP sponsorships and grants, please contact Director of Development Lauren Wiley at 484-588-5935 or
