ex-Registrar Prof. Anthony Emeribe delivers UNICAL 102nd Inaugural lecture Today (Join Virtually here.
Former Registrar of the Medical Laboratory Science Council of Nigeria (MLSCN) as well as Former National President Association of Medical Laboratory Scientists of Nigeria (AMLSN) Professor Anthony Emeribe will today October 14, 2021, deliver the 102nd Inaugural Lecture of the University of Calabar at the University’s International Conference Centre.
Professor Anthony Emeribe, a tenured Professor and Honorary Consultant at the University of Calabar and UNICAL Teaching Hospital respectively will be speaking on the theme: “Sanguis: Gateway to Quality Human Disease Diagnosis, Management, and Research” which will highlight barriers to access to diagnostics in Nigeria and the way forward towards the attainment of UHC2030.
The epoch-making event would coincide with his 17 years of academic research work and training of doctoral and other postgraduate students as a Professor of Haematology and Blood Transfusion Science.
The erudite scholar served as a consultant to the World Health Organisation, in the development of the WHO’s first two editions of the Essential Diagnostics List (EDL). He also served as Lead Consultant to develop the first-ever National Essential Diagnostics List (NEDL) for Nigeria with the aid of the WHO and Global Fund through its support to Management Sciences for Health.
His tenure at the Medical Laboratory Council brought about a comprehensive overhaul of the operations of the regulatory agency that ended the decades of rot and put it on a firm footing that enabled the country to regain international regard, recognition, and renewed acceptance of results of laboratory investigations produced by elite medical laboratories in the country, several of which have been able to secure high-level certification by the International Standard Organisation.
Today, those laboratories now justifiably wear their annually reviewed and renewed ISO certification as a badge of honor akin to winning an Olympic gold medal. It is heart-warming that his legacy at the regulatory agency still speaks till today, more than five years after his tenure was truncated.
