Lab Activities in Kenya

Global Implementation Solutions is supporting capacity building at Isiolo and Kajiado County Laboratories. GIS conducted site visits at both the Hospital Laboratories to assess their diagnostic capacities and disease surveillance capabilities. Kaitlin Sandhaus and GIS technical consultants assessed each laboratory using a modified checklist based on IDSR priority disease guidelines, the WHO SLIPTA tool and the American Society of Microbiology (ASM) checklist; as well as interviewed key staff and laboratory managers.

GIS will provide mentorship, basic microbiology training and will procure equipment for both laboratories.
