Resource Description: Presented at USAID’s Global Health Mini-University 2016.
In a recent survey of over 100 government officials, the need to improve the quality of health care emerged as their number one priority. With the new SDGs and the growing attention to achieve Universal Health Coverage, the international community has renewed focus on ensuring quality services are not only accessible, but also delivered consistently. USAID’s HFG Project together with the Joint Learning Network, the USAID Applying Science to Strengthen and Improve Systems (ASSIST) Project, the World Health Organization (WHO) and others have developed a guide outlining success factors in structuring institutional roles, responsibilities, and relationships that improve governing for quality care, including levers that can be used by leaders to improve quality.Download
