Bridging the Quality Gap - Strengthening Quality Improvement in Community Health Services: A symposium, 2016

This event was held on the 29 September 2016 and brought together a wide range of stakeholders – from government, communities, the health service, non-governmental organizations, research institutes and universities, and funders – to share learning on quality improvement.
