for Quality in Health Care
ISQua's Mission Statement:

Who We Are
ISQua was established in 1985 with a vision to promote quality and safety in health care through international co-operation and collaboration. ISQua is dedicated to making this vision a reality.
While much has been achieved in the last 30 years of our operation, there is still more to be done. Adapting and continuing ISQua's vision for the future will always require new visionaries to carry things forward.
