Improving health care quality in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs): results of a systematic review


2018 has seen an unprecedented call to action on quality in healthcare, with the publication of three global reports on healthcare quality. All highlight the costs of poor quality healthcare in both human and economic terms and recognize the central role of healthcare workers in achieving high-quality care. The Health Care Provider Performance Review (HCPPR) is a systematic review of the effectiveness and cost of strategies to improve the performance of health workers across a range of settings in low-and-middle income countries, including hospital- and clinic-based health workers, community health workers, pharmacists, and drug vendors. The review includes published and unpublished studies with strategies to improve health worker performance for any health condition. The HCPPR has more than 700 studies on more than 200 improvement strategies in a wide range of settings, including both the public and private sector, making it one of the largest systematic reviews on LMIC health systems.
