ASM, in collaboration with local partners, has been improving clinical microbiology services across the Ethiopian laboratory network through customized training and mentoring programs since 2009. Such programs help establish quality-assured laboratory diagnostic capacity at both national and regional levels.

Success Stories

Strengthening Clinical Microbiology to Address HIV-related Opportunistic Infections in Ethiopia

Since the launch of its Regional Laboratory Microbiology Mentoring Program in 2011, ASM has been providing microbiology mentoring support to the Adama Regional Reference Laboratory, Bahir Dar Regional Health Research Laboratory, Hawassa Regional Public Health Laboratory, and Mekele Regional Health Research Laboratory.  All four laboratories provided limited microbiology services at the onset of the program.  Today, all four laboratories have the capacity to process more specimens for routine bacteriology and some are beginning to share the knowledge with other laboratories from their respective regions.
