Four Medical Labs Secure Accreditation 

October 17 , 2020

The Ethiopian National Accreditation Office has given accreditation to four medical laboratories that had previously submitted their applications for the service. Wolaita Sodo University Teaching Referral Hospital, Debre Berhan Referral, Tor Hailoch General Specialised, and Shashemene Referral hospitals are the accredited laboratories. The applications were submitted to the Office prior to the onset of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) in the country. Following the establishment of the Office a decade ago, it has been working on strengthening its institutional capacity and accreditation service to meet international practice standards. In the past eight years, it has provided accreditation for 55 medical laboratories, examinations for 34 laboratories, carried out the inspection of 12 institutions and certified one institution. The Office has also secured approval from the African Accreditation Cooperation validating its services for inspection, examination and accreditation of medical laboratories elsewhere on the continent.
