AFENET LAB

AFENET LAB

The AFENET-LAB project seeks to assist Ministries of Health to build and strengthen public health laboratory capacity in Africa by creating a laboratory network to aid communicable disease control and inform public health policy. AFENET-L is funded through the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). 

To better enable data capture, use and sharing, AFENET-L is pioneering the implementation of the Basic Laboratory Information Systems software in partnership with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Georgia Institute of Technology, and Uganda’s Ministry of Health.

To achieve its Objectives AFENET-L also trains equipment technicians in selected countries, and supports their laboratories through equipment calibration aimed at fast tracking laboratory accreditation.
