USAID and URC Celebrate Seven Years of HCI Project Accomplishments

Last month marked the closing of the URC-managed USAID Health Care Improvement (HCI) Project, the largest global effort to date to improve health care quality in lower- and middle-income countries. This important seven-year effort advanced the state of the art of health care improvement.

Dr. James Heiby of the Office of Health Systems at USAID has written a blog post on the USAID ASSIST web site about the importance and impact of HCI around the world.  The report highlights both the achievements and key areas of learning from HCI. It also contains appendices providing measures of improvement from 23 countries and lists all HCI studies and technical publications.

URC led the HCI project team, which also included subcontractors EnCompass LLC, FHI 360, HEALTHQUAL International, Initiatives Inc., Institute for Healthcare Improvement, and Johns Hopkins University Center for Communication Programs.
