Heath Security Agenda:

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.

The vision of GHSA:

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.

Capital City 2019:

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:

  1. To  x-ray the goals, programs and activities implementation of the GHSA, and how these have helped  strengthened  the capacity of medical laboratories in public health and clinical settings, to rapidly detect, and transparently report disease outbreaks in Nigeria, or otherwise, in the last 5 years;
  2. To galvanize attention of the government and people from key GHSA sectors, to the GHSA goals and how these can serve as veritable platforms and opportunities for a strengthened medical laboratory networks in sub-Saharan Africa.
  3. To engage medical laboratory, public heath, global health experts to propose strategic steps and systems strengthening priorities for medical laboratories that are essential to achieve the goals and aspirations of the GHSA.
  4. To create fora and opportunities for networking and collaboration between local and international experts on GHSA, medical laboratory scientists, public and global health practitioners, researchers, captains of industries, policy makers , laboratory product manufacturers and vendors, and health services and products consumers.
