UMAPS Scholar, Francis Mulekya Bwambale, from Makerere University College of Health Sciences, Kampala, Uganda, will present the highlights of the quality of healthcare policy and implementation in East, Central and Southern African regions.

The paper highlights the quality of healthcare policy and implementation landscape in East, Central and Southern Africa region. We describe the processes and efforts undertaken by countries in institutionalizing quality of care in health systems and medical education by sharing  findings from a rapid assessment conducted among six countries in the region. We also highlight critical gaps and opportunities, and propose recommendations for strengthening quality of healthcare in Africa.
