Accurate and timely diagnosis can be critical to effective care and treatment of diseases, but in many medical centres in Burkina Faso, this can be a challenge.

The laboratory and testing facilities can be many kilometres away and, with limited and expensive transport options, there can be a long wait for test results, even if it is possible to get samples etc. to a laboratory in the first place.

In response, the Bethanie medical clinic is looking to expand the range of testing and diagnostic services it is able to offer from its laboratory and would welcome help to purchase the equipment and pay the staff it needs to make this possible.
