NRL Asian Workshop on Quality 2020

When: 3-4 March 2020

Where: Sheraton Manila Bay hotel, Manila, Philippines


NRL is proud to present the NRL Asian Workshop on Quality 2020!


This Workshop has been devised to allow laboratory workers within the Asian region to come together and share their experiences in infectious diseases testing and learn from quality improvements in countries similar to theirs.

Built upon the success of the NRL Quality Workshops held in Indonesia in 2017,  Malaysia in 2018 and Vietnam in 2019, the 2020 Workshop has the following objectives:


  • Improving infectious diseases testing by enhancing quality and quality management systems

  • Education on the benefits of quality assurance programmes such as EQAS and QC

  • Capacity building for under resourced laboratories focusing on topics such as Monitoring and Supervision, Diagnosis and Testing Algorithms, Achieving Compliance,  the Regional Network of Hepatitis Reference Laboratories among other relevant themes

  • Offering local workers the opportunity to present on their experiences around quality and testing

  • Providing an interactive forum for delegates to liaise and connect with one another regarding common issues and challenges encountered


The two day meeting will include regional speakers focusing on topics as they relate to quality in testing and provide a forum for interactive discussion by delegates.


Sponsorships are now open and Registrations will open soon.
