Work with us to make a difference | LABSKILLS AFRICA - Volunteering Opportunities

LABSKILLS AFRICA is a two-year collaboration involving 12 partners in the UK and Africa. The programme is funded through a USD 1.1 million grant from the UK Department for International Development (DFID) and aims to contribute towards the improvement of the diagnostic services of 20 public sector laboratories in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

RCPath is the lead partner for LABSKILLS AFRICA and is working in partnership with the College of Pathologists of East, Central and Southern Africa (COPECSA), the British Division of the International Academy of Pathology (BDIAP), the Aga Khan University Hospital in Nairobi, and the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (LSTM) to deliver the programme.

Volunteers are an important part of the LABSKILLS AFRICA programme and we are now looking to recruit suitably experienced and qualified pathologists (in microbiology, haematology and biochemistry) and biomedical scientists who are interested in contributing to the development and delivery of this major initiative as volunteer trainers, mentors and assessors.

Please see below for a volunteer brief and application form.

If you would like to be considered for these volunteering opportunities, please submit a completed application form and CV (no more than 4 sides of A4) via email to Rashpal Saini, UK Programme Co-ordinator (email:
