The Royal College of Pathologists has a long-established commitment and track record of contributing to the improvement of pathology and laboratory medicine services in under-resourced countries through education and training. 100% of the money you raise from taking part in this challenge will be used to support and deliver the College’s global health work. This work includes laboratory systems strengthening projects and activities such as:
- Sending volunteer pathologists overseas to mentor and train laboratory staff in low income countries;
- Providing education bursaries to overseas doctors and scientists, which will allow them to undertake a period of specialist training, research or study either within their country or externally; and
- Working with others to re-build the laboratory systems in countries where the health system has been weakened as a result of a humanitarian disaster or emergency situation.
