USAID's Global Resource for Improving Health Care: Current Activities of the USAID Health Care Improvement Project
The USAID Health Care Improvement Project (HCI) is a six-year Indefinite Quantity Contract issued in September 2007 by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) to University Research Co., LLC (URC). The goal of the HCI Project is to achieve and document measurable improvements in the quality of health care and health workforce management in USAID-assisted countries. The project seeks to develop the capacity of host country health systems to apply modern quality improvement (QI) approaches to make essential services better meet the needs of underserved populations, improve efficiency and reduce the costs of poor quality, and improve health worker capacity, motivation, and retention. This short report provides a brief overview of the project's activities in FY2013.
