A basic clinical laboratory is being established aboard. The main focus is on major target diseases in rural Philippines, including especially sputum microscopy for tuberculosis. Where appropriate, getting alongside rural health facility staff and strengthening their lab skills is also a focus. We welcome volunteers with suitable medical laboratory experience to join in!
