Background

The Medical Laboratory preparedness for the next pandemic.

Covid-19 caught the world unprepared and caused one of the unprecedented mortality and morbidity in the history of the human race. The effect of covid-19 cannot be quantified in economic, scientific and social terms. Countries irrespective of scientific, technological and technical know how we’re not insulated from the fury of the virus . It took over a year for the world to partially contain the novel virus with an attendant economic downturn.

The containment and management of covid-19 was centrally established in the Medical Laboratory. Covid-19 diagnosis and management was resolved in the laboratory using modern technology and expertise. These technologies and expertise were contributory to massive successes recorded in the fight against novel viruses. The battle would have been won earlier if the needed technologies, manpower and technical know-how were available.

Glory Of All Lands 2021 Scientific Conference of the Association of Medical Laboratory Scientists of Nigeria (AMLSN) will focus on the medical laboratory preparedness for the next pandemic. The Conference will explore the various Scientific technologies and tools essential in containing the pandemic and improving upon the public health capacity of Nigeria.

Introduction

The Association of Medical Laboratory Scientists of Nigeria (AMLSN) Annual Scientific Conference and workshop has been a yearly programme since 1964, when the Association was formed. The conference has provided a notable platform for the convergence of medical laboratory scientists, other health professionals, researchers, policy makers and business men and women, where ideas and business fester towards the improvement of health systems and health care.

This year’s conference, the 57th in sequence, is termed GLORY OF ALL LANDS 2021. The conference is named after the slogan of Yenagoa, the capital city of Nigeria’s gas capital, Bayelsa State – that is known as the glory of all lands – where the story of the Nigerian Oil and Gas Industry began, has come a long way.
