SafeCare is a quality improvement model developed by the NGO PharmAccess, aimed at lower-level public and private health facilities in sub-Saharan Africa. The private sector is a major and growing source of care, but there are concerns about quality and safety, and these are insufficiently addressed by government regulation or international hospital accreditation standards. SafeCare was designed to address this gap, offering realistic setting-appropriate standards and stepwise certification, as well as access to credit for implementing improvements.
