Laboratory medicine matures in Africa: How should Nigeria translate talent to impact?

From Nigeria Health Watch Thu Dec 20 2012, 05:00:00

We could not attend an important conference on Laboratory Medicine in Africa this month because we were involved in another important event in London at the same time, so you can imagine our excitement when a dear colleague - Iruka Okeke sent us her take from the conference. Iruka has contributed a lot to the development of laboratory medicine on the continent. Her seminal book - Divining without Seeds: The Case for Strengthening Laboratory Medicine in Africa is compulsory reading for all those really interested in improving health care in Africa.
