OIE Laboratory Twinning Programme in the region

Each Twinning project is a partnership between a particular OIE Reference Centre (which may be an OIE Reference Laboratory or an OIE Collaborating Centre) and a Candidate Centre. The OIE Reference Centre provides the Candidate Centre with technical support, guidance, and training. Laboratory Twinning projects provide mutual benefits for Parent and Candidate Institutes, including the creation of joint research opportunities, establishment of research networks and sustainable capacity building.

This page provides the information regarding the OIE Laboratory Twinning Projects completed/ongoing in the region.
