"In a gentle way you can shake the world" - Mahatma Gandhi

Over the past 5 years, ISQua has moved from being a mainly upper income association of organisations and members to one that is truly global. Our members now come from just about every region of the world and this is the strength of the organisation. COVID has taught us of the need to learn rapidly and to share our experience, the humanity of suffering, redemption, sadness and joy all together.

The success of the response has rested on the hard work of those on the frontline and on the acceptance of citizens to be sensible and follow public health advice.

After a year of living with COVID-19, I would like to reflect on the way we have responded to the pandemic and how it has impacted on the quality of care. While it may be easy to look back and find fault in how we responded, there are many positives and lessons that can be taken forward.
