Quality of Care

Getting the right care, in the right way, at the right time is essential for ensuring healthy lives and well-being for all, at all ages. And it is a fundamental human right. Yet poor quality of care and lack of patient safety are one of the greatest killers and challenges health systems face across the globe. Patients receive “too little care, too late,” but also the risk of “too much care, too soon” as over-medicalization is mistakenly seen as quality improvement. This session, convened by WHO, UNICEF and UNFPA, will take a comprehensive approach to quality of care, putting people and their rights at the centre. It will cover the provision and experience of sexual and reproductive health care in particular, highlighting the latest research and implementation experiences from countries.

DATE Wed, 13 November
TIME 13:00 - 14:30 EAT
