    Survey of Quality in Healthcare

    Project ID: SV-007 Status: Completed

    Our results suggest that to improve overall quality in medical care in Sri Lanka and reduce gaps with the private sector, the primary need is for government to increase investment in public sector services, particularly in staffing, diagnostic equipment and medicines. Such investments would also reduce inequalities in access to quality care that exist because non-poor patients can sometimes buy better treatment. Areas for improvement also exist by targeting specific clinical practices, but this may need additional supportive resources. Finally, the findings suggest that a relatively high level of clinical quality may be an additional factor together with high levels of medical care use that explain Sri Lanka's exceptional health outcomes.
