As one of the few human biospecimen collection unit in the sub-Saharan region, SsahiPath Biobank collects a wide range of biospecimen types including blood and blood derivatives, and health information donated by SsahiPath patients. SsahiPath Biobank is not focused on any particular disease. Rather, the Biobank collects samples and health information from patients and other volunteers regardless of health history. Once a participant becomes a part of the Biobank, he or she becomes a part of ongoing health research.
