Message from the Congress Executive Secretary

 | Post date: 2022/05/7 | 



                                                                                                   In the Name of God

The 19th Congress on Quality Improvement in Clinical Laboratories will be held while we have been facing colossal challenges to overcome; late issuance of the permit for establishing continuing medical education credits and programs and the permit for side exhibitions of laboratory equipment from Food and Drug Administration of Iran on the one hand and on the other hand limited capacity of Milad Tower Conference Center in providing suitable accommodation commensurate with the requirements of the congress besides the need for swift adjustments and modifications in infrastructures of Iran Mall Event and Convention Center to set the stage for conducting some topics in virtual format have all made the involved professional team to work incessantly, day and night, to organize the congress in the best possible way for the audience. Therefore, after two years of interruption in holding the Congress in physical format due to COVID-19 restrictions in the community, the opportunity is now provided to establish the event in a suitable, calming, and relaxing environment.

Unfortunately, the establishment of Congress in 2022 coincides with lack of allocation of foreign exchange by government to kits, supplies, and laboratory equipment, as well as a huge increase in daily costs of laboratories in all aspects, including personnel, energy carriers, and rising prices of consumables. If the laboratory tariff is not adjusted in proportion to these costs, medical diagnostic laboratories and companies supplying the equipment will soon encounter irreparable harms and deplorable conditions, and it is predicted that the field of laboratory diagnostics and subsequent treatments will suffer from a major failure.

Therefore, we deeply believe that the 19th Congress on Quality Improvement in Clinical Laboratories will play a fundamental role in reflecting the views and problems of the laboratory community through the large participation of colleagues, private and public sector officials, news agencies, and mass media.
