RAMALLAH, June 26, 2017 (WAFA) – The International Federation of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine (IFCC) upgraded the membership of the Palestinian Medical Technology Association (PALMTA) from corporate to full after a vote Monday.
The result came after a voting has taken place in which Palestine has won a permanent seat within IFCC, becoming the 91 state with full membership.
PALMTA said in a press release that Palestine’s membership at the United Nations, as well as efforts exerted by the Palestinian leadership to support Palestine’s application to become full member at IFCC has eased the way for Palestine to win full membership.
Osama Najjar explained that Palestine has been a corporate member for many years.
IFCC is a worldwide, non-political organization for clinical chemistry and laboratory medicine based in Rome. As such it has a range of roles that include global standard setting in collaboration with other international organizations, supporting its members through scientific and educational endeavor, and providing a series of congresses, conferences and focused meetings in order for laboratory medicine specialists to meet and present original findings and best practice.
