The Four Elements of the Covid-19 Laboratory Network QAP

The Quality Assurance Program (QAP) implemented by the Research Institute for Tropical Medicine (RITM) is a program that aids in the establishing and strengthening of the Laboratory Quality Management System (LQMS) or the set of processes implemented by laboratories to ensure that test results are accurate and reliable as possible. It is a comprehensive set of activities designed to help the labs meet international quality standards as specified in the WHO LQMS toolkit, but adapted to the local setting.
