Medical experts and laboratory scientists, yesterday, stressed the need for collaborative efforts between the government and private sector to build a strong, solid, affordable, reliable and dependable international standard laboratory system for effective diagnosis of diseases.
The experts, including Minister of State for Health, Dr. Olorunnimbe Mamora; former Minister of Health, Prof. Isaac Adewole; former Minister of Trade and Industry, Dr. Onikepo Akande, among others, spoke, yesterday, in Ibadan, Oyo State, at the ISO accreditation certificate presentation to Access to Basic Medical Care (ABC) Diagnostic Foundation, founded by wife of former Governor of Oyo State, Mrs. Florence Ajimobi.
