Who We Are

ISQua was established in 1985 with a vision to promote quality and safety in health care through international co-operation and collaboration. ISQua is dedicated to making this vision a reality.

While much has been achieved in the last 30 years of our operation, there is still more to be done. Adapting and continuing ISQua's vision for the future will always require new visionaries to carry things forward.

"ISQua is an international acorn. With our members behind it, you never know how much growth that acorn may one day achieve" - Jack Best, ISQua President 1991-1993, writing in the ISQua Journal in 1995.
