Excerpt
A Working Group on Appropriate Technology in Health Laboratories was convened by the WHO Regional Office for Europe in collaboration with the Government of the United Kingdom, in London from 2 to 5 October 1979. The purpose of the meeting was to review the organization of health laboratory services in Europe and to discuss the roles and basic requirements of laboratories at local, regional and central levels. It was attended by temporary advisers and observers from nine countries, who had relevant experience of a spectrum of disciplines - clinical biochemistry, haematology and blood banking, microbiology, histopathology, immunology and food and environmental hygiene (see Annex I1 for list of participants).
