Preparing for Surge Laboratory Capacity in the Event of an Outbreak

Wednesday, Aug. 30, 2023

11 a.m.-12 p.m. U.S. ET/ 3-4 p.m. GMT 

The COVID-19 pandemic demonstrated gaps and weaknesses of health systems, particularly laboratory microbiology capabilities and capacity. While tremendous resources have since been mobilized and deployed to strengthen preparedness and response for future pandemics, disparities remain, particularly in many laboratories in low- and middle-income countries. Dr. Andre Abreu and Dr. Afreenish Amir shared their perspectives and strategies for ensuring their respective country’s approaches to surge capacity planning.
