Access to high-quality and timely pathology and laboratory medicine (PALM) services will be needed to support health-care systems that are tasked with providing universal health coverage.  Individual diagnosis and disease detection, prognosis and treatment planning, population cancer surveillance, and global health security are not possible without access to PALM expertise and infrastructure.

Published March 16, 2018 in the Lancet, a series of articles related to global health has been prepared by an internatiional team of authors well regarded for their expertise in global medicine and pathology.
