WHO Guide for the Stepwise Laboratory Improvement Process Towards Accreditation (SLIPTA) in the African Region (with checklist)
The purpose of this document is to provide guidance for using the Stepwise Laboratory Improvement Process Towards Accreditation (SLIPTA). It describes key elements of the laboratory quality improvement process and details how Member States and partners can implement this initiative for strengthening laboratory systems.
The World Health Organization Regional Office for Africa will work with the Independent Evaluating Group (IEG) Secretariat, ministries of health (MoH), and other key partners to oversee the management of SLIPTA to strengthen national health laboratory services.
The SLIPTA checklist is to be used as an audit tool.
