Improving the accessibility and affordability of healthcare is important, but unless the quality of care is also high, health will not improve.
ACCESS Health International works in low, middle, and high income countries to improve quality of care. We support efforts to collect and make use of data, help set priorities, and improve the quality of care. We work with both public and private payers. We also partner with academic institutions to encourage innovation and excellence in healthcare leadership.

ACCESS Health India brings healthcare practitioners together into collaboratives to drive improvements in target areas. We have piloted successful collaboratives on neonatal care and eye care and are bringing this work to scale throughout the country.

Quality of care varies dramatically in India, both among formal and informal healthcare providers. About sixty percent of patients seeking primary care services receive unnecessary or even harmful treatment, yet many other providers are able to deliver world class services at a fraction of what that care would cost in other countries.
