CelebrateLAB West Africa is a Regional Conference Highlighting Medical Diagnostics in Africa. The annual meeting brings together laboratory professionals, policy makers, regulators and stakeholders who play vital roles in Laboratory Systems Strengthening. The outbreak of the Ebola Virus in the region in 2014 emphasized the need for developing healthcare systems in a manner that provides for public-private Partnerships and ways to fill in the gaps where governments have competing priorities. The outbreak brought to the fore vulnerabilities of health systems in the region and reminded stakeholders of the need for sub regional exchanges and experience-sharing in order to have better health outcomes as populations move across borders. Effective diagnostic environments and access to knowledge are essential for global health systems.
