Dr Shams Syed, Quality Systems and Resilience, WHO and Dr Kamaliah Noh, technical expert on operational policy development will discuss how high-performing PHC cannot be achieved without attention to quality health services, with a particular emphasis on effectiveness, patient safety and people-centredness. 

Participants will be able to:

  • Recognize key practical linkages between efforts focused on quality and the drive for PHC.
  • Understand country pathways for improving the quality of health services in PHC settings.
