Safecare Certified Facilities
Safe care was founded in 2011 by Pharm Access, JCI and COHSASA to help fill the gap in the African Health Care system relating to quality of healthcare.
Through a set of internationally (ISQua), recognized quality standards and a step-by- step improvement path, it offers positive incentives for healthcare providers to move upwards in Clinical and business performance. Safe Care is operating in Kenya, Ghana, Nigeria, Tanzania, Namibia and Uganda.
Safe Care was established to support both public and private health care facilities to go through a step wise quality improvement program to deliver safe and quality secured care to their patients.
Safe Care introduces standards that enable healthcare facilities to measure and improve the quality, safety and efficiency of their services. According to Khama Rhogo, Head of the World Bank Group’s, Health in Africa Initiative, Safe care standards generate a market for health care quality improvement and improve access to care for millions of people in the informal sector in Kenya.
The following are the facilities so far assessed using Safecare standards in their respective regions in Uganda.
