1. Global Health Laboratories
Global Health Laboratories is a free, open-access, online professional community designed for laboratory researchers and staff to exchange resources, knowledge and experience. The aim of Global Health Laboratories is to support laboratory research in developing countries by providing a forum for researchers and staff from around the world. Here laboratory personnel can discuss issues and seek help, give and receive advice and access quality per reviewed information about any aspect of laboratory practice. It is also a platform for sharing methods, resources, tools and courses.
By enhancing networking and exchange between different types of laboratories globally, working in all types of settings and across disease areas, Global Health Laboratories aims to enable equitable access to quality research resources and to promote Good Clinical Laboratory Practice.
The East African Integrated Disease Surveillance Network (EAIDSNet)’s objective is to enhance the exchange and dissemination of appropriate information on Integrated Disease Surveillance (IDS) and other disease control activities; and ensuring continuous exchange of expertise and best practices for disease surveillance and control. The target audience are ministries of health and health-related sectors; health personnel policymakers; researchers; public health professionals; and students of public health. Reports vary and include notes from the field, policy notes, outbreak reports and updates, full reports, announcements, editorials, research, reviews, corrections, case reports, case studies, commentaries, letters to the editor, and meeting reports.
The EAPHLNP Monitoring and Evaluation focuses on accountability for results (i.e., moves beyond the usual tracking of inputs and outputs, and places a strong emphasis on intermediate and final outcomes). In addition to the accountability function of evaluation, this results framework also emphasizes the learning function of evaluation, therefore this M & E portal is facilitating collation, analysis and interpretation of data from the countries and therefore serving as a gateway to information, knowledge management & exchange among the participating countries in East African Region. The countries and the regional bodies (ECSA Health Community & EAC), collect, synthesize and analyze data from the satellite sites, national and regional levels to contribute to the larger body of knowledge on best practices and lessons learned related to the design and implementation of innovations in improving diagnostics and surveillance capacities to control communicable disease in the region.
The EAPHLN E-learning platform offers electronic and online course material and assessment for various courses like Biosafety, Disease Surveillance, Introduction to Computers, Laboratory Management etc. In case you are interested please call 0772312160 or 0794424323.
