Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of our team in the Central Public Health Laboratories, Ministry of Health, and under the patronage of her Excellency Prof. Dr. Hala Zayed the minister of health and population, we are honoured to invite you to join the 2nd annual One Health Approach workshop.

We believe in our role in scientific progress and the sustainability of our activities. In 2019, the 1st “One Health Approach scientific conference” was held. We worked on sharing knowledge, technical skills and scientific experience.

This year, in this scientific workshop we will focus on our experience in infectious diseases with the global Pandemic COVID – 19 laboratory diagnosis and LCD array classification of Mycobacteria (TB complex & other than TB MOTT).

The scientific workshop will be held on three consecutive days, 10-12 November 2020.

The 1st day will contain scientific lectures on both topics (COVID – 19 and Mycobacteria) and will be held in The National Training Institute. The next 2 technical days will be held in the specialized labs in Central Public Health laboratories.

We will apply strict safety measures and social distancing to prevent the spread of COVID – 19 infection.

Finally, we are grateful to our partners, the organizing company and laboratory equipment companies, which always support us with technical support, supplies, equipment and sponsoring. Looking forward to meeting you in our 2nd annual “One Health Approach” workshop.

Prof. Dr. Nancy Mohamed El-Guindy
Head of Central Public Health Laboratories
