Innovation Description

Recognizing that strong quality improvement systems are essential for achieving priority health outcomes, PAI developed the SafeCare standards and Stepwise quality improvement methodology in a formal partnership between PAI, the Council of Health Service Accreditation of Southern Africa (COHSASA), and the Joint Commission International (JCI). HDIF is supporting PAI and its private sector collaborators CSSC, PRINMAT and APHFTA to scale up SafeCare, the only methodology in Tanzania with standards for basic healthcare facilities at the bottom of the pyramid ranging from village health posts, to dispensaries, health centers and district hospitals. The standards of SafeCare enable the healthcare providers facilities to measure and improve the quality, safety and efficiency of their services that will lead to accreditation. PharmAccess have also included an additional Maternal, Newborn and Child Health (MNCH) service delivery component, building on the HDIF supported clinic network that will be quality improved and evaluated through SafeCare and receive business training and loans through the Medical Credit Fund.
