ISQua Conference Scholarships
2010 was another great year for the ISQua-WHO Conference Scholarship programme. Twelve professionals, including 10 women, from 12 different low and middle income countries across six WHO regions attended the 2010 ISQua International Conference in Paris in October.
For many professionals, including a grantee of the WHO Patient Safety Research Small Grants programme, their attendance would not have been possible without the support from the ISQua-WHO Scholarship programme. The scholarships enable these 'future leaders' in health care quality and safety to expand their learning and experience through exposure to international networks and experts in health care quality while enjoying the rich programme and excellently run conference.
The success of this scholarship programme is a testament of the excellent collaboration between ISQua and WHO Patient Safety. These are some of the happy faces of those scholarship recipients.
Information about the ISQua-WHO Scholarships for 2011, will be available from February 2011 on the ISQua website and WHO Patient Safety website:
