REPORT OF ACTIVITIES "LATIN AMERICAN CONFEDERATION OF CLINICAL BIOCHEMISTRY" 2020 (COLABIOCLI)
Dr. Álvaro Justiniano Grosz
President of COLABIOCLI.
The Latin American Confederation of Clinical Biochemistry defines the entity as "A professional institution of a private and international scientific, academic and trade union nature, non-profit, which will group entities formed by university professionals who are dedicated to Clinical Biochemistry or similar professions, created or to be created, in Latin America, or in other countries with a Latin language, without political, racial or religious purposes, and their affiliates will have the rights and obligations established in their statutes "this Paragraph precisely define the activities to be carried out by the Latin American entity.
Latin America has been the epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic for a few months now, which has been advancing without restraint across the continent. Until December 2020, a total of 13,189,470 cases of COVID-19 have been registered in Latin America and the Caribbean. Political management in a fragile health system led many Latin American governments to decree confinement and closed borders, with the aim of protecting inconsistent health systems, instead, unequal or rotating restrictions, difficulties in controlling movements of the Population and stress on health systems have catapulted the numbers of infections and deaths in these countries.
The immediate challenges will not be limited to the post-pandemic, which is already an immense challenge, given that we are facing a very deep economic recession and serious difficulties to respond, when the situation stabilizes. The pandemic brings an enormous social weight, an increase in inequality and greater poverty, however, our entity is not outside this situation and virtuality allowed us to interconnect more, exchange experiences, develop projects, programs of updating, continuous training activities. The pandemic allowed our entity to advance in some spaces of the clinical laboratory and its role in diagnosis in some countries, in many other postponed plans, it prevented the development of actions aimed at improving not only sanitary conditions, but also an agenda aimed at generating the leadership of institutions in very important issues such as regulatory frameworks that allow incorporating laboratory medicine in certain countries into external quality assessment programs, laboratory accreditation, insertion of young professionals, and others. Despite this, our entity, in this difficult situation, was able to find adequate mechanisms to develop activities that serve as an instrument to help the countries during an extremely complicated year for the region. A detailed report of the activities carried out by the Latin American Confederation of Clinical Biochemistry is presented below.
The Executive Committee of COLABIOCLI wants to thank everyone for the contribution and work done during this year, since without their support nothing would not have been achieved in such difficult times.
