    The first project, initiated by WHO SEARO, provides support for EQAS capacity building in Sri Lanka and commenced with a baseline in-country assessment of the EQAS manufacturing resources at the Sri Lankan National Blood Transfusion Service. The outcomes will be used to provide a tailored training program for their staff.

    The second project, supported by Yayasan KNCV Indonesia (YKI), has involved the provision of theoretical and practical EQAS training to four identified laboratories in Indonesia, followed by an onsite assessment of each laboratory to assess its capacity to become a national EQAS provider.

    A third project has been a WHO WPRO gap analysis of access to laboratory services at the primary healthcare level in the Western Pacific Region. This project aims to fulfil commitments made by WHO Member States through the endorsement of the Regional Framework for Reaching the Unreached in the Western Pacific (2022–2030), by gathering best practices and challenges to accessing primary healthcare from across the region so that all concerned countries can benefit from them.  This project is still in progress and has required multiple virtual interviews of key healthcare figures in the Region.
