WASPaLM notice, 16 Aug 2010 [cached]
Meeting with Dr. Gaby Vercauteren We had a very constructive discussion with Gaby who informed us that none of her projects for 2006 were implemented because of a variety of political factors and changes within WHO. She has agreed to cooperate with WASPaLM on a WASPaLM educational project in 2008 in Africa. The countries under consideration are Kenya Ghana and Nigeria. The choice of venue will be determined after further discussion with potential hosts. Gaby will be meeting with Robby in London in April 2007.
Dr. Vercauteren also informed us that she will be happy to participate in our bureau meeting in Malaysia and will not be seeking any funds for her trip. The title of her proposed talk will be >The importance of laboratory services at primary care level - a global perspective We also held discussions with Mr. P. Cerf, Counsellor Federal Foreign Office, Berlin, member of the German delegation regarding the establishment of a common Health Terminology based on SNOMED CT. He told us later that he has informed Mr. T. Hofmann, Deputy Head of the Division, Federal Ministry of Health, Bonn, who also is a member of the German Delegation promoting this venture.
Gaby also knows of our support for this initiative and she undertook to lobby appropriate individuals on behalf of WASPaLM.
Cheap and reliable health care ..., 25 Feb 2010 [cached]
Cheap and reliable health care technologies are what the developing world and the Western world need, said Dr. Gaby Vercauteren, coordinator of diagnostics and laboratory technologies at the World Health Organization.
"Obviously smaller, easy to use, inexpensive technologies will find their way throughout the whole system and will provide better access to care to all those who need it," she said.
She said many medical diagnostic tests are too expensive for people in poorer areas of the world to afford. But they are the essential first step to health care.
"Today, many people don't get the necessary diagnosis that will lead to access to the right treatment because diagnostic tests and lab tests are, most of the time, out of pocket," she said.
Vercauteren, of the WHO, said the paper may mold in humid, hot climates. And it's still important for people to get access to doctors so they know what to do about their diagnoses, she said.
She said its possible to conquer those challenges.
