Diagnostic lab for rural Nigeria.

 

Following their successful screening of over 5,000 children for Sickle Cell disease, Fantsuam Foundation has now decided to construct its own rural diagnostic laboratory. Building started last week.

Located at Ungwan Masara, in Kaduna state, Nigeria, this facility, when fully equipped, will serve a rural population of over 600,000 within a 55km radius.

This significant initiative will be a befitting milestone to mark the celebrations of the 5th Dadamac Day which is to be held this Thursday, 4th November.

Local and global issues are to be discussed at this online meeting which consists of members from the Nigerian and UK team and other invited guests.

A key point is to explore the best ways for the global community to support the growth of the Knowledge Resource Centre at Fantsaum Foundation. In fact the KRC and how it hopes to support the development of this new laboratory will be top on the agenda.
