The Quality of Life programme works at bringing measurement solutions for health, safety, industry and the regulatory bodies. This is done through calibration, specialised measurement solutions, testing for medical, NMISA Strategic Plan 2019/24 19 health and safety, and law enforcement. The strategic direction will be to focus on initiatives dealing with measurement solutions and measurement traceability in cancer care, primary health care, pharmacology, health and safety and maternal health care for the country.
This will include testing of medical devices, rolling out of a National Audit programme in radiotherapy and other medical devices. Traceability for microbiological testing required for the country will be looked at, and capabilities already available in the country will be considered to decide on whether to establish NMISA capabilities or designate another Government Entity or Department that already has capabilities so that they can service the country.
