In 1990, URC went to Jordan to provide technical assistance for the Quality Assurance Project (QAP), a USAID-funded initiative to help raise awareness that quality improvement is an essential component of health system strengthening. URC continued its health improvement efforts in Jordan, providing leadership for Partnerships for the Health Reform and Partners for Health Reformplus (PHR and PHRplus) projects, which focused on implementation of improvements in health policy, management, financing, and health services delivery. URC has also worked to improve the quality and safety of health care services in hospitals and primary health care facilities through the Jordan Healthcare Accreditation Project (JHAP).
