Our Work

The Lancet Global Health Commission on High Quality Health Systems in the SDG Era (HQSS Commission) will review current knowledge, produce new empirical work, and offer policy recommendations on care quality at global and national levels in LMICs. We are guided by the values of originality, rigor, policy-relevance, transparency, and respect for local contexts and actors.

Watch HQSS Commission Chair Dr. Margaret Kruk describe the Commission while addressing the World Health Organization’s Quality, Equity, and Dignity effort below.

Our work is organized into four Commission working groups. Each working group will bring fresh thinking to key areas related to health care quality through rigorous analyses that can inform policy change.
