African Society for Laboratory Medicine

ASLM is a pan-African professional body endorsed by the African Union and focused on improving healthcare by strengthening diagnostic testing. Laboratory testing is pivotal in disease diagnosis, epidemiological surveillance, outbreak investigations, initiation and monitoring of treatment, as well as research and development.

Medical laboratories in Africa are unfortunately underdeveloped and cannot meet the testing demands of rapidly growing health delivery services in the 21st century. Recognising the World Health Organization (WHO) Resolution AFR/RC58/R2 for strengthening public health laboratories in the African region and the 2008 Maputo Declaration on Strengthening of Laboratory Systems, ASLM will address these challenges by working collaboratively with governments, national, regional and international organisations, implementing partners, the private sector and other agencies to achieve the following goals by 2020:

Building a sustainable laboratory workforce
Accrediting laboratories to improve performance and quality
Improving the regulation of medical diagnostic products
Building laboratory networks to improve early disease detection and collaborative research
