Improving health worker performance in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) remains a major challenge. This webinar looked at the global level sharing the findings from a systematic review of the effectiveness of more than 100 strategies in LMICs to improve the performance of health workers (hospital- and clinic-based health workers, CHWs, pharmacists, and drug vendors) in both the public and private sector. The Health Care Provider Performance Review (HCPPR) considers the effectiveness of interventions to improve health worker performance in low- and middle-income countries and was presented by Dr Alex Rowe. The Ministry of Health Malawi also shared country experience and learning to support improvement of health worker performance. The Ministry shared their experience in capacity building for QI which has been undertaken in learning sites and also share assessment tools have been developed to assess health worker performance.
This webinar is co-hosted by the Quality of Care Subgroup of the Child Health Task Force and the Network for Improving Quality of Care for Maternal, Newborn and Child Health.
