Health service quality must be ensured — at all times, everywhere — including during emergencies, contends a new Collection of articles launched today in the British Medical Journal (BMJ). The authors call for greater investment and political attention to quality issues – not just access - as a cornerstone of universal health coverage
Developed as a collaboration between The BMJ, WHO and the World Bank, the Collection explores the emerging priorities and unfinished agenda for improving the quality of care in low and middle-income countries, providing examples from maternal, newborn and child health.
