The objectives was to compare the laboratory strategies adopted by hospital based and independent laboratories. The questionnaire included queries on the types and volumes of specimens received in the laboratory for gastrointestinal infections, laboratory strategies adopted in their diagnosis, the common pathogens isolated and routinely used antimicrobials for susceptibility testing. Of the sixty respondents, 48 (80 percent) were hospital based, 11(18.3 percent) were independent and 1 (1.7 percent) was field based.
