Improving the quality of care in public health facilities in Bangladesh was identified as an ongoing challenge in the 2015 Health systems in Transition (HiT) report on the Bangladesh health system. Recent publications in the international literature have emphasized the importance of improving the quality of care in the public sector in order to drive improvements in the private sector. This policy note takes advantage of new insights emerging from international thinking and research on quality of care to identify potential policy opportunities in the evolving landscape of health policy in Bangladesh.
