For SHN, delivering high-quality health services means providing personalized care that aligns with client needs and expectations while meeting evidence-based protocols
This brief examines the Surjer Hashi Network (SHN)’s work enhancing high-quality antenatal care and delivery services in Bangladesh, supported by the Chemonics-led USAID Advancing Universal Health Coverage (AUHC) activity. Building on the nation’s successful attainment of the Millennium Development Goals and its commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals, SHN’s Maternal and Newborn Health Quality Improvement initiative focused on testing a strategic approach to quality, leveraging facility-based quality improvement teams. This comprehensive framework elevates current standards of care and serves as a testament to the feasibility and effectiveness of low-cost, health worker-driven improvement interventions and its contribution to universal health coverage.
