Over the next two days, the Caribbean Med Lab Foundation (CMLF) supported by the Global Fund Project in collaboration with the Ministry of Health and the Belize Bureau of Standards will be conducting a workshop to develop a National Laboratory Policy and Regulatory Framework for Belize at the Radisson Fort George Hotel in Belize City. An official ceremony to open the workshop was conducted on the 3rd December, 2014.
Objectives of the workshop will be to identify and agree on challenges in the medical and public health laboratory services in Belize; to review the draft laboratory regulatory and policy framework for the Caribbean; and to initiate the development of a National Laboratory Policy for the operation and regulation of public and private sector laboratory services in Belize.
The development of this National Policy is being spearheaded by the Belize National Laboratory Network, a working group chaired by the Belize Bureau of Standards formed in 2012 following recommendations from the Caribbean Med Lab Foundation. The group is responsible for creating and fostering a better regulatory environment for the operations of Medical Laboratories in Belize.
