The IFCC Foundation for Emerging Nations (FEN) is a non-profit making Charitable Trust established in 2016 under Swiss Law by the International Federation of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine (IFCC).
The FEN is devoted to fund raising and to supporting programmes that help to improve the quality and delivery of laboratory medicine services, particularly in emerging nations.
A high percentage of all clinical decisions are influenced by the results of laboratory medicine investigations. Consequently, patient safety and clinical outcomes are dependent on the quality of laboratory medicine services. In developed countries laboratory medicine services are of high quality, and most are accredited against an international standard. In emerging nations there is scope for improvement in the quality of laboratory medicine services but educational support is required. The FEN will provide educational support for specific projects.
Make a Donation: The Foundation Board welcomes donations from individuals, organisations and other charitable Foundations interested in improving patient safety and clinical outcomes in emerging nations.
