Abstract: Accurate, economical methods for haemoglobin determination by laboratories in countries with limited resources are not available. This report provides the results of an international collaborative study evaluating the alkaline haematin detergent [AHD[575]] method as a reference method for laboratory services with limited resources. The study included 6 laboratories; 3 in East Mediterranean countries, 1 in East Africa and 3 in Europe. The [AHD[575]] method was evaluated against the HiCN method, with blood samples drawn from healthy and sick subjects. The results indicate that the AHD[575] method is suitable for measuring haemoglobin in laboratories at all levels
