COHSASA made a good showing at a recent  IFC Private Health Conference “Developing Resilient Health Systems in Emerging Markets” when one of its recently accredited facilities, Avenue Hospital Parklands in Nairobi, won the competition to present the best business case for quality competition at the conference. The competition had earned its entrants a free pass for the two-day conference and the honour of the award. Participants had been invited to submit entries showing how they had implemented quality improvement activities and the results that these had on improving patient care and giving a return on investment.
