Kupang Presentation CliniCon

This talk was presented by one of our committee members, Trish Green, at CliniCon ASM Perth July 2023 and gives an overview of microbiology laboratory capacity building at Prof. Johannes Hospital in West Timor, Indonesia. This work was done through the Flinders Overseas Health Group (FOHG), which provides multi-disciplinary collaborative professional development for health professionals in Nusa Tengarra Timor(NTT) Province. The talk helps to provide insights into the challenges in an under-resourced setting and also touches on the disparities in access to healthcare. The experiences of up-skilling laboratory staff, improving infection control standards and helping the overall health outcomes for patients are also presented.
