Lab Renovations!

 

CAT-Adjamé is the largest of eleven regional TB laboratories in Cote d’Ivoire. The TB microscopy center is heavily burdened, receiving approximately 150-200 acid-fast bacilli (AFB) microscopy smears per day.  The three-month renovation project addressed inherent operational weaknesses identified in the TB microscopy laboratory, clinical biology laboratory, and wash room during ASM’s site assessment in 2012.  The renovated CAT-Adjamé is a remarkable stride towards improved diagnosis of HIV-TB co-infection in Cote d’Ivoire.
