SafeCare is a formal initiative between PharmAccess, the Joint Commission International (JCI) and the Council for Health Service Accreditation of Southern Africa (COHSASA). They teamed up to develop clinical standards that are solid, secure and realistic for resource-restricted settings. And most importantly, they involve no compromise: they advocate the same quality standards as other international bodies.
SafeCare standards are divided into 13 different categories, covering full range medical to non-medical aspects of care and ranging from small health shops to large district hospitals. They are accredited by the International Society for Quality in Health Care External Evaluation Association (IEEA) (previously: ISQua).
