International Workshop on Fundamental Techniques in Viral Diseases Diagnostics
Venue: COMSTECH Secretariat, Islamabad
Many OIC member states are facing various challenges in their healthcare systems, lack of diagnostic facilities being one of them. At the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak, many OIC member states, particularly in Sub-Saharan Africa, were lacking testing facilities for the virus (SARS-CoV-2). COMSTECH is planning to offer a workshop on the Fundamental Techniques in Viral Diagnostics for building the capacity of OIC member states in this area.
The three-day workshop will be held at the COMSTECH headquarters in one of most modern and scenic capital cities of the world, Islamabad. The city was purpose-built as capital of 6th largest globally and 2nd most populous (in OIC) country Pakistan in 1966. Pakistan according to the Forbes magazine is a hidden treasure for tourists. The country is rich in cultural diversity, ancient history, diverse landscape, cuisines, modern cities, and of locally produced items.
Details of the workshop and application process will be shared on the website soon. COMSTECH will provide complete local hospitality, internal transportation, and sightseeing visits for all registered participants.
