The Ministry of Health signs a partnership agreement with Accreditation Canada


The Minister of Health and Social Protection, Prof. Khalid Ait Taleb chaired, in Rabat, a meeting in the presence of Ms. Leslie Thomson, President and CEO of Accreditation Canada, to implement the provisions of the agreement signed between the two parties last November. This agreement aims to accredit health institutions and improve the quality and safety of health services provided in Morocco.

This meeting aims to examine the modalities of cooperation relating to the allocation of human and material resources necessary for the implementation of the provisions of the agreement. It also aims to supervise the work of the joint committee responsible for planning and approving the program and the topics covered, as well as defining the methods and procedures for implementing the areas of partnership and cooperation. In addition, it focuses on the regular evaluation of the implementation of the areas of the agreement and the results obtained.

It also aims to identify and strengthen cooperation mechanisms to incorporate best practices and take advantage of the expertise offered by Accreditation Canada in the field of quality assessment within health establishments. The objective is also to establish cooperation mechanisms in this area, as well as to support the High Authority of Health in implementation on the ground, particularly with regard to the accreditation of health institutions.

Therefore, the implementation of the program will begin gradually, initially focusing on the city of Rabat before expanding to other regions. This progressive approach will make it possible to firmly establish the foundations of the system before its deployment on a larger scale.

In addition, support through training is a key element of this approach. Training of those involved will play a crucial role in the successful accreditation of healthcare facilities. By offering appropriate training, it will be possible to facilitate the understanding of the required norms and standards, while promoting the adherence of health professionals to the accreditation process.

This meeting is of capital importance in the concretization of the partnership agreement, thus offering the opportunity to define the standards to which the new generation of health establishments will have to comply as part of the profound and global reform of the health system . This also demonstrates the shared commitment to continually improve the quality and safety of health services in Morocco.

It should be noted that Accreditation Canada offers a wide range of high-impact assessment programs aimed at healthcare establishments, aimed at improving their quality and safety. These programs are specifically designed to meet local needs, with a team of more than 900 visiting experts with deep expertise in health care and social services.
