[Comment] Pathology and laboratory medicine: the Cinderella of health systems

High-quality pathology and laboratory medicine (PALM) services are an integral part of health systems in high-income countries. New molecular diagnostic techniques, advances in precision cancer treatments, and population-based screening programmes for disease prevention or early detection have made PALM an even more important part of modern medicine and health care. And yet, even in high-income countries, the role of PALM is not well understood by the general public, and pathology remains a somewhat unpopular specialty in medicine.
