Abstract

[Extract] The Lancet Global Health Commission on High Quality Health Systems in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Era (HQSS Commission).1 The launch draws attention to the fact that high quality health care, rather than just access to health care, will be necessary to meet the health-related SDGs. The Commission aims to address the lack of an “agreed upon single definition” of high quality health systems and produce “science-led, multidisciplinary, actionable work with […] measurable indicators”. But phrases like single definition and measurable indicators in the context of an exercise seeking to strengthen quality in highly variable health systems in low-income and middle-income countries (LMICs) should raise red flags.
