The Nigeria Healthcare Quality Initiative (NHQI) is a collaboration between the Private Sector Health Alliance of Nigeria (PHN), Health Strategy and Delivery Foundation (HSDF) and Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
The NHQI seeks to empower front-line health providers, regulators, policymakers and community groups to improve the quality of health care, thus improving patient safety, maternal and neonatal outcomes and client satisfaction.
The private sector partnership which commenced in September 2014, seeks to achieve the following primary outcomes by September 2017:
  • Improved governance and advocacy for quality improvement in the country.
  • Reduction in facility based maternal deaths by 25% in 3 years.
  • Reduction in facility based neonatal deaths by 15% in 3 years.
  • Increase in patient satisfaction scores by 30% in selected facilities in 3 years.
