“Nothing lifts your heart more than giving your support and time to a good cause.” These were the words of Edison Kiprono Chepkonga, a medical laboratory technologist working at Kapsabet District hospital, situated in Nandi County (Rift Valley region), Kenya.  Edison is one of the 26 laboratory personnel that benefited from a biosafety training supported by the PEPFAR/CDC-funded Strengthening Public Health Laboratory Systems (SPHLS), led by MSH. The hospital has a bed capacity of 137. Thirty-seven satellite health facilities refer laboratory samples to the hospital.
