A seminar on Malaria Diagnosis was recently held in Sana’a. It was organized by National Trading & Services Co. Ltd. and conducted by Patrick Jackier, MD and Bahy Ayoub, MD.
A lot of topics were discussed during the seminar which was attended by laboratory technicians.
Malaria is a global health problem, responsible for nearly 3 million deaths each year, and it is on the increase worldwide.
