NRL EVENTS: NRL Asian Workshop on Quality 2020- Registrations Opening soon!

NRL is delighted to announce that the NRL Asian Workshop on Quality 2020 will be held from the 3-4 March 2020 at the Sheraton Manila Bay Hotel in Manila, Philippines.

 Building upon the success of previous NRL Workshops on Quality in Indonesia (2017), Malaysia (2018) and Vietnam (2019), the aim of this Workshop is to promote the importance and development of high quality infectious diseases testing and quality assurance programs in Asia.

NRL has successfully delivered laboratory strengthening and capacity building training across the region for a number of years and will expand on this by hosting a two day Workshop in the Philippines. Speakers from laboratories, non-government agencies and industry will be invited to share their perspectives on quality in infectious diseases testing and delegates from diagnostic, hospital based and/or reference laboratories, blood transfusion services, WHO regional offices and industry are all welcome to attend.

Topics for 2020 will include Quality Assurance Programmes such as QC and EQAS, Blood Screening and Safety, Validation of IVDs, Quality Management Systems and much more!

This meeting has been devised to encourage regional laboratory workers to come together and share their own experiences and learn from quality improvements in countries similar to theirs.

Registrations for the Workshop will open this week and we look forward to welcoming participants from across the region to the 2020 NRL Asian Workshop on Quality!

Sponsorships for this event are also available.
