The K4Health/Nigeria Web-Based Continuing Medical Laboratory Education (CMLE) Program sought to improve laboratory service delivery through the establishment of a comprehensive, compulsory CPD program for Medical Laboratory Scientists (MLS) in Nigeria. This video highlight the project’s highly collaborative partnership and the approaches that it took to achieve its goal. You will hear the story of the project’s achievements told from the viewpoint of its local partners and Medical Laboratory Scientists themselves. The project’s approach can be easily adapted to other country contexts given the need for the continued maintenance and updating of one’s skills to meet the real-time needs of emerging infectious and non-communicable diseases and the unique challenges that they pose to various cadres of health professionals.
Building country ownership and local capacity as well as ensuring sustainability of the K4Health/Nigeria Web-Based Continuing Medical Laboratory Education (CMLE) Program’s activities was a critical component of the project. This video highlights the role that the local partners played and was produced specifically for them to use as a promotional video to seek clients and investors for the accredited eLearning services that they now offer as a result of the project.
