As an outreach arm of CLSI, the Partnerships program is uniquely qualified to provide laboratories with how-to materials and hands-on training that enable them to implement high-quality, standardized practices. We work with a number of partners that have supplemental capabilities, working together to help us all achieve our goals more effectively.
The African Society for Laboratory Medicine (ASLM) is a membership organization for African laboratory professionals. ASLM is committed to improving diagnostic services and increasing patient access to high-quality laboratory testing across the continent. Learn more at www.aslm.org.
The Global Health Systems Solutions Inc. (GHSS) is a nongovernmental, nonprofit, and apolitical organization. GHSS is dedicated to seeking innovative solutions to strengthen health systems in developing countries for effective service delivery and surveillance of infectious, noninfectious, and neglected tropical diseases. GHSS maintains an office in Accra, Ghana, working with the Ghana Health Service to improve laboratories. In 2017, CLSI will work with GHSS to move proficiency testing activities from GHSS to the new National Public Health Laboratory.
The World Health Organization (WHO) office for International Health Regulations is located in Lyon, France. Since 2006, CLSI has worked with WHO-Lyon and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to develop quality management systems training materials for laboratories. Most recently, the collaboration has resulted in the development of a Quality Manual template. Learn more at www.who.int/ihr/en/.
