WHO Global Learning Laboratory Webinar- National Quality Policy and Strategy: Building Momentum

Register Here


The development, refinement and execution of a national quality policy and strategy (NQPS) is a priority for countries as they look to systematically improve the performance of their health systems. Implementation informed policy-making provides the basis for a culture of quality across all levels of the health system. With the growing momentum towards UHC, there is increased awareness that access must be accompanied by focused efforts to improve the quality of health services, to achieve the desired improvements in health outcomes and achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). Indeed, given that NQPS is a priority for many countries, WHO has launched a global initiative on national quality policy and strategy. The work on NQPS  is a key focus area of the WHO Global Learning Laboratory for Quality UHC.
