The Ministry of Health and Child Care established a Quality Assurance and Quality Improvement (QA/QI) Directorate under the division of Policy, Planning and Monitoring and Evaluation in 2010. Its mandate was to create a system for coordinating all health care related quality efforts under the ministry. This would include, creating platforms to ensure adherence to ministry standards where they are available, facilitating the development of standards where they were not available, as well as developing guidelines on how service delivery can be of the highest possible standards. This is in an effort to ensure that healthcare delivery not only meets, but exceeds the professional standards and client expectations.
