Much attention has been given to implementation of interventions to support quality and performance improvement for primary health care workers (HCWs) in low- and middle-income settings (LMIC). However, little is known about the design of such initiatives and which approaches predominate, let alone those that are most effective. The authors conclude that future research should prioritize comparative intervention trials to establish clear global standards for performance and quality improvement initiatives. Such standards will be critical to creating and sustaining a well-functioning health workforce and for global initiatives such as universal health coverage.
