Event Overview
Welcome message:

Dear colleagues and friends,

The Association of Medical Biochemists of Bosnia and Herzegovina has the pleasure of inviting You to the 23rd Meeting of the Balkan Clinical Laboratory Federation to be held in Sarajevo, on October 7-9, 2015, joined together with the 2nd Congress of Medical Biochemists of Bosnia and Herzegovina. This is the first time that our Association of Medical Biochemists of Bosnia and Herzegovina acts as the organizer of the BCLF Meeting.

Sarajevo is the capital and largest city of Bosnia and Herzegovina, a place where every building tells a story be it serene or of strife. It is a place where the old world meets the new world; where The East meets The West. The city is famous for its traditional, cultural, and religious diversity, with adherents of Islam, Orthodoxy, Catholicism and Judaism, coexisting there for centuries. Due to this long and rich history of religious and cultural variety, Sarajevo was sometimes called the "Jerusalem of Europe".

In 1885, Sarajevo was the first city in Europe and the second city in the World to have full-time electric tram network running through the city. In 1914, it was the site of the assassination of the Archduke of Austria-Hungary which sparked World War I. Seventy years later, it hosted the 1984 Winter Olympics. Ever since the Olympic games Sarajevo has been a popular tourist attraction.

Nowadays Sarajevo is the leading political, social and cultural center of Bosnia and Herzegovina, a prominent center of culture in the Balkans, with its region-wide influence in entertainment, media, fashion, and the arts.

My very best wishes, and we are looking forward to meeting you in Sarajevo in October 2015. Make your reservations, join us and enjoy the 23rd BCLF Meeting and your stay in Sarajevo.

Jozo Ćorić
AMBBH President


 

Dear colleagues and friends,


On behalf of Balkan Clinical Laboratory Federation it is a great pleasure to welcome you to the 23rd Meeting of the Balkan Clinical Laboratory Federation (BCLF), which will be held in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, on October 7-9, 2015.

This year meeting will provide another opportunity for specialist involved in different fields of laboratory medicine from Balkan region to get together and exchange experiences in terms of present and future challenges placed in front of us. Clinical laboratories represent an area of healthcare that undergoes major changes because of many new diagnostic techniques and laboratory tests introduced as a result of both: understanding the mechanisms of diseases and the development of new technologies. Together with clinicians, we have to find the best way of implementing new markers so that requirements of quality and clinical effectiveness are met.

It is obvious that laboratory medicine is becoming increasingly global, leading us to the need of common approach to quality standards in total testing process. This meeting will provide ideal background to discus and make decisions about harmonization requirements in our field of work and make concrete steps towards implementation of common quality standards in Balkan region. Our efforts will further fortify main laboratory medicine goal – improvement of patient safety by providing test results that contribute to selection of effective, necessary and correct treatment and appropriate patient care.

23rd BCLF meeting in Sarajevo, well known by its hospitality, will most certainly bring us closer together. There is a saying that no one is a stranger in this beautiful, lively and diverse city that like no other place in Europe effortlessly hosts eastern and western cultural and historical treasures.

I wish you memorable 23rd BCLF meeting and to enjoy your staying in Sarajevo.
