The Global Health Security Agenda (GHSA) was launched in February 2014, to advance a world safe and secure from infectious disease threats, to bring together nations from all over the world to make new, concrete commitments, and to elevate global health security as a national leaders-level priority.
is a world safe and secure from global health threats posed by infectious diseases – where we can prevent or mitigate the impact of naturally occurring outbreaks and accidentally or intentional release of dangerous pathogens, rapidly detect and transparently report outbreaks when they occur and employ an interconnected global network that can respond effectively and limit the spread of infectious diseases outbreak in humans and animals, mitigate human suffering and the loss of human life, and reduce economic impact.
The Association of Medical Laboratory Scientists of Nigeria (AMLSN) is breaking away from the norm, by using its annual scientific conference this year, to focus on how the lofty goals of the GHSA could be advanced through an interconnected network of medical laboratories, in both public and clinical settings, that is capacitated to rapidly detect, and transparently report disease outbreaks in Nigeria and other sub-Saharan Africa countries.
The objectives of the conference include:
The Association of Medical Laboratory Scientists of Nigeria (AMLSN) International Conference and Annual General Meeting (AGM) tagged “Capital City 2019” is poised to inform the narrative and quality of evidence on global health security in sub-Saharan Africa with the theme: Global Health Security: The Medical Laboratory Agenda for Sub Sahara Africa.
These are some of our speakers who will anchor different section of the conference
