Tóm tắt: Despite increasing awareness of the effect of bacterial infections and the global threat of antimicrobial resistance, laboratory capacity in bacteriology is a weak and neglected pillar of health systems in low-income and middle-income countries. Although training of laboratory staff in technical laboratory procedures seems fairly easy, the typically brief encounters in which such training is usually provided do not allow staff to become sufficiently experienced to undertake and interpret such procedures independently and to guarantee sustainable quality of activities. We would like to draw your attention to the interactive telemicrobiology programme, which was conceived to ensure sustainable training efforts, quality management systems, and interactions between clinicians and microbiologists. We assessed the feasibility and short-term effect of the telemicrobiology programme in Vietnam and the Netherlands. Four clinical microbiology laboratories in Ho Chi Minh City and provincial southern and central Vietnam, and one in the Netherlands, collaborated for 2 years to develop the infrastructure and digital education courses for a 6 month pilot of bi-weekly interactive virtual laboratory rounds...
