Introduction:

Background:

IFCC has a long and proud record of supporting educational projects to improve the quality of laboratory medicine in emerging nations. It was this experience that prompted IFCC to establish the FEN so that this important area of work can be given higher prominence. A small selection of such projects is given in this section to illustrate the variety of projects supported by IFCC. The map shows the geographical scope of the projects:

 

 

These projects do not define the limits of projects that may be funded by the FEN.
