dc.description.abstract Global health care can be improved through the use of sound quality management strategies. Health care quality is defined as the ability of the facilities to provide safe medical care to patients and achieve the anticipated health outcomes. The main quality aspects in healthcare include: patient safety, effectiveness, patient centered services, the ability to provide health care services to the patient on time, efficiency and equity. Previous research and cohort studies document the use of quality as a vital tool in global health. These researches raise a number of issues that can be used to improve quality. In this paper, a systematic literature review was conducted. Data was collected from already published materials on health care quality. The data was analyzed through content analysis to determine the major perspectives. The results indicate that the main quality aspects that improve global health are the use of information technology and e health solutions, use of strategic human resource management, training health care workers, reducing disparities when providing healthcare services, developing good policies that improve healthcare quality, use of evidence based practice, improving the medical service efficiency and patient safety. en_US
