AMAR INCORPORATES MEDICAL LABORATORIES WITHIN HEALTH FACILITIES TO PROVIDE IMMEDIATE ACCESS TO TESTING AND DIAGNOSTIC SERVICES.
AMAR includes medical laboratories within health facilities that have been newly built or refurbished. Fully equipped by AMAR, these laboratories process medical tests and results within the facilities themselves. Access to testing and diagnostic services is therefore available much quicker than if patients were transferred elsewhere or tests were processed at a different laboratory.
The laboratories collect medical data that contributes to the development of in-country health information systems. These health systems are very important to the ability to identify the condition and needs of the population. This data also informs and shapes AMAR’s current and future projects.
