Since 2008, ASM in collaboration with the Haitian National Public Health Reference Laboratory (LNSP) has been improving the TB case detection rate through training events, to reduce morbidity and mortality associated with TB, including multi-drug resistant TB at the national and regional level.  In addition, ASM is assisting with improving badic microbiology testing at two regional sites, and is strengthening the clinical-laboratory interface through course delivery for clinicians.

Success Stories

Improving TB Diagnostics in Post-Earthquake Haiti

The 2010 Haitian earthquake caused wide-spread displacement and a drastic increase in TB cases. To address TB endemic, ASM has assisted with capacity building for the adoption and implementation of the fluorescence microscopy (FM) to detect TB. FM is more sensitive than conventional microscopy, and ASM’s influential training programs across the country have helped to ensure quality assurance across the Haitian laboratory network.
