Point of Care Continuous Quality Improvement

Ending Preventable Maternal, Newborn and Child Mortality

POCQI- Point of Care Continuous Quality Improvement is a movement towards ending preventable mortality among mothers, newborns and children and will contribute to making progress towards achieving new goals of the Global Strategy for women’s, children’s and adolescents’ health and Sustainable Development Goals (SDG-3).

Good quality of services that are respectful and recognize the dignity and rights of all women, newborns and children is an essential and critical element of universal health coverage that itself underpins what we want to achieve under SDG-3. POCQI model has been developed by WHO-SEARO, WHO Collaborating Center for Newborns (AIIMS) and ASSIST and is supported by UNICEF, UNFPA, USAID and WHO as a collaborative movement in the South-East Asia Region. This dedicated website will serve as a collaborative learning platform for progressively building capacity of healthcare teams and other stakeholders; and as a repository of knowledge in quality improvement as well as the acquired experience from the Region and beyond.
