Expertise in a wide range of specialties and opportunities for joint research will be achieved. Professional development programmes will be actively managed by all partners and joint developments shared amongst Labnet members for mutual gain.
Labnet will support integration of pathology services by providing standardized infrastructure layout and processes, a range of services including supervision, cost negotiations, standardization of equipment, business and financial management skills, marketing support, as well as facilitation of acquisition of information technology. Members will have access to a Common quality system, standardized methods of reporting format and strict ethical practice. Having pioneered the birth of Labnet I wish to encourage our members to take advantage of this rare opportunity and move the practice of medical laboratory science in Kenya to the next level
Scientific Officers (AKMLSO)and Private Sector Innovations for Health (PSP4H) a UKAID supported organization entered into partnership to support private laboratories owned by qualified Association members under Labnet Technologies a network of branded laboratories by improving their business skills and laboratory status which will go a long way in ensuring that they provide affordable laboratory services to needy Kenyans without compromising quality of service and their business income.
It is my hope that the branding of private laboratories as mark of quality will add impetus to the laboratories and also help Kenyans to easily identify laboratories owned by real professionals and where quality matters at low cost.
Members a cross the country are urged to seize this golden opportunity by joining the Network in large numbers as this the only way to have many poor working Kenyans to access quality Laboratory Services in private sector.
