WORLD ACCREDITATION DAY JUNE 9TH 2011(supporting the work of regulators)

FHI Laboratory Sciences Division in collaboration with the Kenya Medical Laboratory Technologist and Technicians Board (KMLTTB), representatives of government and relevant partners, petition institutions, policymakers, laboratory professionals and funding agencies do hereby commit to supporting the strengthening of medical laboratory quality service delivery during the upcoming World Accreditation Day celebration on June 9th 2011. Over 70\% of medical decisions are based on laboratory results and the quality of laboratory services is a gateway to the appropriate diagnosis, management and treatment of disease and assured effective healthcare.

In making this petition, we agree with recommendations by:

1. The recently launched African Society for Laboratory Medicine (ASLM), which advocates for the critical role of the laboratory and the need to strengthen and raise the status of laboratory medicine on the continent.

2. The Maputo Declaration, which sought to address medical laboratory challenges that limit the scale-up of services and recommended, among others, the need to expand and further develop quality assured laboratory services as part of a greater framework of health systems strengthening.

3. The Lyon, WHO and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) conference, which reviewed the status of laboratory quality systems around the world and agreed on strategies to ensure accurate, reliable and timely laboratory test results in all countries. The conference also recommended, among others, support to establish sets of standards according to country-specific needs based on internationally agreed-upon standards.

4. The YaoundŠ¹ WHO-AFRO Resolution, which recognized the situation of laboratory services in Africa as characterized by inadequate staffing, equipment and supplies. Among the 31 regulations discussed was the need to strengthen public health laboratory supply and distribution systems and ensure adequate funding for public health laboratory services.

5. The appeal by Prof. P Nyongo,Minister of Medical Services Kenya, during his visit to CDC-KEMRI HIV-Research Laboratory for the country to embrace laboratory accreditation process.

Please join us in this advocacy!
