Establishing a Healthcare Quality Self-Regulating Body in Nigeria
This programme pilots the establishment of an Institute focused on Healthcare Quality Improvement in Nigeria by developing and testing models of self-regulation and accreditation from other countries
This project is one of a number of exploratory pilots that will be supported through funds awarded to HANSHEP by the World Bank Development Grant Facility. It includes four distinct phases:
- Reviewing and identifying best practice from healthcare quality accreditation and regulation bodies in other countries;
- Analysing the current Nigerian landscape of provider-led quality of care regulatory bodies and initiatives;
- Developing and piloting a quality of care self-regulating structure adapted to the Nigerian context; and
- Disseminating the lessons learned to relevant stakeholders in Nigeria and around the world.
Implementation timeline: November 2013 - July 2014
Implementing Partner: The Society for Quality in Healthcare in Nigeria
This programme has been enabled by a World Bank DGF grant awarded to HANSHEP in 2013.
