6.3 Programme support
The calibre of the professional personnel is the ultimate determinant of the standard and value of the laboratory service; they must have a high degree of technical competence, motivation, critical ability, and professional integrity. Inculcation of these qualities can be promoted during in-service training in established laboratories and by engaging consultants of repute in newly established national laboratories.
Training facilities for specialized analytical techniques should be made available in countries where they are already established. Recognizing the great need and the limited resources available within the least developed countries, it is to be hoped that relevant assistance may be forthcoming through bilateral and multilateral aid programmes.
