Abstract: Laboratories play a critical role in the rapid determination of the cause of the outbreak, characterization of the pathogen to understand its molecular features, and to suggest appropriate therapy and control measures. Since no single laboratory or institution in the Region has the requisite infrastructure or expertise to provide these comprehensive services, regional networks of laboratories are essential to meet this need. To forge regional laboratory networks for priority emerging infectious diseases, WHO organized a meeting at Bangkok, Thailand and this report contains the proceedings and outcomes of this meeting.
