Health services require quality as a foundation. For this reason, the Quality Healthcare Awards seeks to honour excellence and innovation in health for quality people-centered care.

Quality Healthcare Kenyan Awards (QHKA) was conceptualized in July 2017 by a Global Health Leader and an Ophthalmology Resident; and later registered as a trademark of Zawadi Brand Solutions (ZBS) in March 2018.

ZBS is a healthcare Social Enterprise that seeks to improve the functions of the health system for better and sustainable health outcomes through highly innovative and responsive health solutions. The interventions are geared towards service delivery, stewardship, health financing as well as human and physical resources for more effective and inclusive health systems.

The first of its kind in Africa, QHKA has taken on the mantle and seeks to change the narrative and showcase impact of the positive contributions in the Kenyan health sector for scalability and sustainability.

The Quality Healthcare Awards initiative takes a health systems strengthening approach to improve standards of health service delivery among health professionals by recognising outstanding performance, promoting a culture of continuous Quality Improvement, advocating for strong partnerships between health providers and users, fostering innovation and the use of information technology, sharing of best practices, uniting the public and private sectors towards a common goal and creating a platform for collaboration.
