Accreditation Certification ISQua EEA
The Ministry of Public Health (MOPH) is proud to announce the reception of the prestigious Award by the International Society for Quality in Health Care – External Evaluation Association (ISQua EEA) for the Accreditation Standards of Hospitals in Lebanon 2022 Edition.

This development marks a crucial step forward for quality improvement and the enhancement of patient safety culture with internationally recognized standards.

Given the principal importance of improving healthcare management, quality of care, and patient safety in our hospitals, especially in these challenging times in Lebanon, we are committed to maintaining the accreditation process as an integral part of continuous healthcare improvement in Lebanon, with teams/trainers dedicated to improving care in hospitals, 44 trained surveyors and more than 500 health professionals from all hospitals in Lebanon currently being trained.

Special recognition goes to Dr. Walid Ammar for his leadership and guidance in transforming the hospital accreditation system in Lebanon.

We would like to extend our gratitude to Dr. Fadi El-Jardali and his team for their exceptional work in revising and improving the accreditation standards and tools. We also thank Dr. Ali Elhaj for his contributions during the initial phase of standards revision.

We are deeply grateful the financial support of AFD, to the Haute Autorité de Santé (HAS France) and all individuals who offered their advice and technical support, especially Dr. Bruno Lucet for his complete support during all the preparation process for the ISQua EEA certification.

We express our sincere appreciation to the Comité Technique d’Accréditation Hospitalière (CTAH) for their valuable feedback and suggestions, as well as the National Hospital Accreditation Committee (CNAH) including the main stakeholders: Ecole Supérieure des Affaires (ESA), Syndicate of Hospitals, Order of Physicians, Order of Nurses, Order of Pharmacists, Order of Midwives, Lebanese National Committee of Blood Transfusion, Army Medical Services, NSSF, MFE, and various faculties of medicine. We would like to acknowledge their contributions and their unwavering support.

Additionally, we extend our warm thanks to the national experts for their invaluable feedback and suggestions on the standards.

A special thanks to Perrine Malaud Wakim and the team of Pôle Santé at for their continuous dedication and support.
