Delivering Quality Health Care through Communities is a course designed as part of the sustainable development goals (SDGs) to reaffirm a commitment to achieve a universal health coverage (UHC) by 2030.This means that patients, families and communities should have access to the high -quality health care services they need – preventive, curative, rehabilitation, or palliative- without facing financial hardship. At the end of this course students should learn to view health care of good quality as being characterized by high degree of professional excellence, efficiency in the use of resources, minimal risks to patients, satisfaction of patients, favorable impact on health, respect of people’s cultural/traditional views as a major factor in achieving patient’s cooperation in delivering quality health services to communities(Trans-cultural nursing).This course will enable you learn how to engage families and communities in the design, delivery, and assessment of health services to ensure they are built to meet the local health needs – rather than political interest.
