Our Footprint in Africa

UGANDA

Fully registered in Uganda as a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) in 2009, AGHPF has since championed laboratory accreditation – first by providing technical assistance leading to College of American Pathology-Laboratory Accreditation Program (CAP-LAP) for CDC-supported laboratories at the Uganda Virus Research Institute (UVRI) in Entebbe.

In April 2016, the Foundation was awarded a five-year US$ twenty-million cooperative agreement to provide Technical Assistance for Strengthening National Laboratory Systems in Uganda under PEPFAR (NU2GGH001319-02-01).

 

Through the collaboration between AGHPF and Uganda Ministry of Health’s Department of Health Laboratory and Diagnostic Services (DHLDS), there has been a threefold increase in the number of accredited public medical laboratories in Uganda over the past three years. Most recently in May 2019, Kiryandongo General Hospital, Kayunga District Hospital, St. Francis Nsambya Hospital Laboratories maintained their accreditation to ISO 15189:2012 by SANAS.

 

In collaboration with the Uganda Ministry of Health’s Department of Health Laboratory and Diagnostic Services (DHLDS) and other implementing partners, AGHPF has also enrolled some 125 laboratories on a continuous quality improvement program using the Strengthening Laboratory Management towards Accreditation (SLMTA) approach to ensure that they conform to international standards. The SLMTA program has also achieved enduring impact on laboratory personnel who have undergone SLMTA supplemental trainings.
