Lebanon appoints Accreditation Canada International

This project began with a group of 20 Lebanese primary care centers going through an initial assessment of their services, to help identify opportunities for improvement and provide the impetus to improve the quality of care provided to the population. This second phase of the primary health care strategy follows Accreditation Canada International’s successful review and revision of existing Lebanese primary health care standards, and the pilot testing of the revised standards in three local health organizations.

Sébastien Audette of Accreditation Canada International says,” The Ministry of Public Health is using a staged and sound approach that builds consensus within the primary care community and instills confidence that significant improvements can be achieved. The level of engagement has a direct impact on results, and the progress being made is commendable.”
