All India Medical Technologists Association, India
A body of Medical Laboratory Technologists came in to existence in the state of West Bengal in 1970 to develop a national body as All India Medical Laboratory Technologists Association (AIMLTA). The Association has assumed national character and constituted State Chapter in almost all the state and union territory of the country. AIMLTA is the only "Apex Body" of Medical Laboratory Technologists of India that is working its best to promote Medical Laboratory Technology and the profession in the best interest of the Technologists of India. The founding members of AIMLTA visited most of the States, Hospitals and Medical Colleges with the idea to bring all Laboratory Technologists on one platform to give strength to the Association.
AIMLTA's objectives are: a) to generate co-operation and mutual assistance among the members; b) to help all members to secure better life style both academically and sociologically; c) to impress upon all related organizations for proper recognition of Medical Laboratory Technologists; d) to help all members to secure better life style both academically and sociologically; and e) to impress upon all related organizations for proper recognition of Medical Laboratory Technologists.
Links to the health workforce crisis
National Policy Guidelines were made in response to Medical Laboratory Technologists problems, career prospects and enlistment of medical laboratory services. Health was a central component, as well as its importance to modern sciences (this particular category not figured under technical training programmes of either Central or State governments). Eminent scientists and Health Authorities of India supported AIMLTA beliefs, but Medical Laboratory Technologists still had no real voice for over thirteen years in government. The National Policy Draft for Medical Laboratory Technologist submitted by AIMLTA to the Central and State governments recommends the introduction of necessary unifying policies throughout India with the following titles: recruitment policy, staffing pattern, job specifications, training programmes, hazards and risks allowances, and refresher education.
