IAEA and WHO-WPRO Webinar Series to Support the COVID-19 Testing Laboratories in the Asia and the Pacific Region

The COVID-19 global pandemic has presented major challenges in public health sectors worldwide. As part of the UN Crisis Management Team (CMT), the IAEA and WHO are working together towards strengthening public health, supply of essential equipment, training, and investment in laboratory systems of Member States to address challenges posed by COVID-19 pandemic.

As a means to provide enhanced joint support to Countries in the Western Pacific Region, IAEA and WHO-WPRO organized a four-part webinar series to strengthen COVID-19 testing laboratories in the Region. In September, Wayne Dimech (NRL Executive Manager-Scientific and Business Relations) participated in this webinar series as one of the presenters for the “Problem Solving of Technical Questions of the Users/Laboratories” component.
