Establishing a Pathology Service in Northern Uganda

by BiyingBiying 28 Jul 2011 14:38

An accurate diagnosis helps to prevent unnecessary or incorrect and potentially harmful treatment and therefore, ensures better use of resources. But, the turnaround time to make a diagnosis and the accuracy of diagnosis is still unsatisfactory in institutions in Africa such as St. Mary’s Hospital Lacor in Gulu, Uganda. These factors have a profound impact on patient management and outcomes. Also without an accurate diagnosis, effective patient management cannot be implemented and meaningful research cannot be conducted.
