Hosted jointly by the WHO COVID-19 Health Services Learning Hub (HLH) and the WHO Global Learning Laboratory (GLL) for Quality UHC.
This learning event will bring together together policymakers, health professionals and technical partners to identify and solve common challenges in maintaining quality care during COVID-19.
The pandemic has highlighted the critical importance of delivering health services that are effective, safe and people-centred. Focused effort on improving the quality of health services can lessen direct mortality from an outbreak and indirect mortality from vaccine-preventable and treatable conditions. Globally, various strategies are being applied by countries to maintain the quality of health services whilst responding to the pandemic.
Speakers in this event will:
- Explore strategies undertaken by countries to integrate quality into the maintenance of essential health services during COVID-19;
- Identify common barriers and solutions in maintaining quality care during COVID-19;
- Recognise common learning themes and technical assistance needs from countries.
