‘Game-changing’ Strengthening Laboratory Management Toward Accreditation (SLMTA) programme
Efficient and reliable laboratory services are essential to effective and well-functioning health systems. The African Journal of Laboratory Medicine (AJLM) focuses on the role of laboratory and related professionals in the clinical and public healthcare sectors, specifically within an African frame of reference. Its first Special Issue commemorates implementation and expansion of the Strengthening Laboratory Management Toward Accreditation (SLMTA) programme over the past five years (2009–2013). SLMTA has been hailed as a ‘game changer’ and embraced by 47 countries across the globe.
