Mérieux Foundation co-organized event
Global Laboratory Leadership Programme (Mali)
March 2022 - December 2023 - Bamako (Mali)
The laboratory plays a critical role in disease detection, patient monitoring, prevention and health surveillance. Therefore, Laboratory Managers and those in charge of the Ministry of Health must be able to make evidence-based decisions, be able to manage laboratories to ensure quality services, and demonstrate vision and leadership to incentivize the process of change and continuous improvement.
A consortium created by six major international organizations has emerged to develop the Global Laboratory Leadership Programme (GLLP).
As part of its 2017-22 strategy, the Global Fund wanted to include GLLP and outreach mentoring among its strategies to promote innovative initiatives to improve laboratory services. The GLLP program was chosen in response to the interest shown by the countries consulted. The Mérieux Foundation was selected to lead the project in Mali, Guinea and Chad.
The GLLP Program implemented by the Mérieux Foundation aims to strengthen the leadership and management skills of motivated executives who wish to improve their skills and those of their work structure for better laboratory services and better care of the population.
