During the closing session of the sixth Conference of the Health Care Accreditation Council (HCAC), Hawari underlined key strategies to improve the quality of health services locally and globally based on lessons learned following the COVID-19 pandemic. It is important, he noted, to activate the role of institutions, such as the HCAC, to ensure the implementation of quality upgrade programs.

The session, held via teleconferencing technology, tackled several topics, including strategies and measures to improve the quality of post-pandemic health services, addressing the burden that health workers shoulder using World Health Organization guidelines, and means to improve decision-makers' access to data.

The two-day conference brought together speakers, healthcare professionals, and decision-makers from Jordan, the UAE, Lebanon, Egypt, India, the US, Ireland, Australia, Romania, Canada, and Argentina.

The HCAC is a non-profit organization that is committed to upgrading health care services in Jordan and the region by working side-by-side governmental and private entities.
