Article: 56/2512

On 20 June 2022, the World Health Organization (WHO) announced the release of a new WHO quality toolkit, providing tools to improve the quality of health services, gathered for the first time, from across different programmes at WHO. This new online resource is a user-friendly toolkit aimed at supporting action on improving the quality of health services at every level of the health system, from national and district to facility and community levels. 

The quality toolkit accompanies the WHO quality planning guide, which provides a roadmap for action across the health system to improve the quality of health services at the point of care, while the quality toolkit offers practical tools and approaches that can support implementation of the necessary actions. 

The toolkit can be used to gain a good basic understanding on quality of care, but also access practical tools that can be used to enhance quality of care. This WHO toolkit will be updated regularly to ensure new resources available are included.
