Improving Screening & Diagnosis of Breast Cancer
Axios applied the principles of our laboratory modernization programs to the histopathology laboratory at Tikur Anbessa Hospital in Ethiopia to improve screening and diagnosis of breast cancer. To ensure continuous and smooth operations, the program supported consumables and reagents for all laboratory equipment and maintenance of equipment in accordance with international standards. This program has established the hospital as the national reference center for breast cancer treatment and management.
