The Health Finance and Governance Project is hosting a webinar on February 28 to examine lessons around driving quality health care through the Ideal Clinic Initiative in South Africa.

"An Ideal Clinic is defined as a clinic with good infrastructure, adequate staff, adequate medicine and supplies, good administrative processes, and sufficient adequate bulk supplies. It uses applicable clinical policies, protocols and guidelines, and it harnesses partner and stakeholder support. An Ideal Clinic collaborates with other government departments, the private sector and non-governmental organizations to address the social determinants of health.  Integrated Clinical Services Management is a key focus.” – Ideal Clinic, South Africa.
 
Hear how the Ideal Clinic Programme, implemented by South Africa's National Department of Health, is systematically improving the quality of care provided in primary health care facilities.
