DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2017.116
Synopsis: 
Laboratories in Guyana are not prepared for possible vector-borne disease outbreaks. This was largely due to lack of information, guidelines, and tools to facilitate an effective process. Therefore, an effort is required in collaboration with Ministry of Health and laboratories that should derive strategic ways to prepare laboratories.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To determine the level of preparedness among selected laboratories in Georgetown, Guyana to a possible vector-borne disease outbreak and to determine the level of knowledge, attitudes, and practices of laboratory personnel towards climate change and vector-borne disease.
