Jordan

As part of the Jordan Healthcare Accreditation Project (JHAP), URC provided technical assistance to improve the quality and safety of health care services in hospitals and primary health care facilities. JHAP helped to establish and build the capacity of the Health Care Accreditation Council (HCAC) to develop health care standards, certify health care professionals, monitor compliance with standards, and award accreditation. The project established a strong system of quality assurance and accreditation to address changing health needs and to sustain health care improvements.

URC provided technical assistance in Jordan as part of 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 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.
