Labs for Life (Kenya, Uganda, Ethiopia, Rwanda, India, and Haiti)September 12, 2017 - June 30, 2019
The William Davidson Institute is a collaborative, multi-disciplinary organization. As a result, WDI often engages multiple sector and services teams in our work. The following project undertaken by both our Healthcare sector and Performance Measurement and Improvement service demonstrates our holistic approach.
WDI is working with BD to measure the impact of Phase III of the Labs for Life program, which is part of the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) public-private partnership with BD, the Office of the Global AIDS Coordinator and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The goal of the program is to support quality laboratory systems which are needed in order to effectively scale-up HIV prevention, care and treatment efforts. WDI’s work includes developing the Monitoring and Evaluation design and implementation plan and collecting data to measure the impact of the program activities that include Strengthening Laboratory Management Towards Accreditation (SLMTA) training and BD mentorship, in multiple labs across Kenya, Uganda, Ethiopia, Rwanda, and Haiti.
