Quality in Universal Health and Health Care

The aim of the TWG is to create a global community of health consumers, practitioners, policy makers, payers, and researchers who share a common interest in promoting quality of health and health care as a key contributor to the goals of Universal Health Care.

Welcome to the TWG family on Quality in Universal Health and Healthcare!

Having successfully steered the TWG, Pierre and Ed have passed on the baton to Bejoy, Rashad, and Lisa. We are excited about plans for the coming year and would like to share them with you. 

We would like to promote this TWG as a one-stop shop for all events, activities and resources related to quality in healthcare so as to support researchers and implementers to access latest cutting-edge research and innovations in heath systems improvement. 

Aim of the TWG

The aim of the TWG is to create a global community of health consumers, practitioners, policy makers, payers, and researchers who share a common interest in promoting quality of health and health care as a key contributor to the goals of Universal Health Care. We will pursue three streams of work: 

  1. Develop and research quality infrastructure and activities to translate policy into effective large scale programming

  2. Provide structured opportunities for the creation, research and dissemination of knowledge in the design, implementation, scale up, measurement and evaluation of quality of health and health care

  3. Provide access to open source materials and specific opportunities for capacitation of the work force to research and implement quality in health and health care
