Welcome to the International Society for Quality in Health Care (ISQua)

ISQua is a member-based, not-for-profit community and organisation dedicated to promoting quality improvement in health care.
We have been working to improve the quality and safety of health care worldwide for over 30 years. We aim to achieve our goal through education, knowledge sharing, external evaluation, supporting health systems worldwide and connecting like-minded people through our health care networks.
Our extensive network of health care professionals spans over 70 countries and 6 continents. ISQua's members are continually working towards quality improvement in health care around the world.

We all have two vocations in health care – to do our job and to continually improve.
