The Global Lab Quality Initiative (GLQI) comprises interrelated programs for clinical laboratory professionals and students in Latin America and Asia, including:

  • On-site educational workshops
  • On-demand webinars
  • Translation of publications

AACC presents best practices in quality control or method verification and invites host nation speakers to discuss their country's specific guidelines and regulations.
