This six-volume set of standards of care for health centers provides essential and detailed guidance for effective service delivery. Each of the first five volumes addresses a distinct aspect of health center services: health center management, clinical case management, reproductive health, preventive care, and nursing care. The sixth volume offers a comprehensive set of performance checklists, which can be used to facilitate self-assessment and performance review. As a set, the Standards serve as a convenient reference, a guide for service delivery, and a tool to support performance improvement.

This series of documents was selected by the World Health Organization (WHO) as a resource for its website and CD for health service managers, MAKER (Managers taking Action based on Knowledge and Effective use of resources to achieve Results).

Published in 2002 under the USAID Primary Health Care Initiatives (PHCI) project.
