The purpose of this project with Integrated Quality Laboratory Services (IQLS) (“Subcontractor”) is to provide support to the Prime Contractor, International Science and Technology Center (ISTC), for a laboratory strengthening project in Armenia, funded by the Defense threat Reducation Agency (DTRA). Within two years, IQLS will conduct an initial analysis of training provided within the country in human and veterinarian laboratories and implement training gaps related to Sample Lab Flow, Laboratory Quality Management, Laboratory Diagnostics, Staff Competencies in Laboratories, Biosafety and Biosecurity. The goal is to strenghten the capacities of the Armenian laboratory system to facilitate its compliance to the IHR standards. Upon successful completion of the training program implementation, it will be transitioned to the GoAM and DTRA (Funder).
