Recently from our Blog
Within a span of six months, GIS presented 10 labs to CDC for enrollment into RRI accreditation mentorship, and produced recognizable star rating results, with 7 of them receiving National and CDC recognition courtesy of harmonized, synchronized and synergized accelerated ISO 15189 accreditation mentorship.
There are 231 health facilities supported by GIS. 105 of them are transfusing facilities and 38 are directly supported by GIS on Blood Safety activities.
GIS works closely with MOH and CDC as well as relevant partners working within the Western Region, to strengthen county laboratories to plan for, achieve and sustain quality assured laboratory services. One of the strategies is to capacity build the laboratory personnel through trainings. Biosafety and Biosecurity training is one of the major training being a key element in delivery of quality services.
