Quality Assurance Practices for Medical Oxygen Systems: Rwanda Workshop Report

Published : January 30, 2024

MTaPS collaborated with the Rwanda Biomedical Centre (RBC) Rwanda to organize a workshop on quality assurance (QA) of oxygen in November, 2023. During the workshop, participants reviewed the status of medical oxygen QA practices in the country using the MTaPS technical resource on oxygen QA and conducted site visits to health facilities to observe medical oxygen system practices and reflect on how they can be modified and/or improved. At the end of the three-day workshop, participants from all relevant sectors and cadres developed a draft QA framework for medical oxygen systems in Rwanda, which will be incorporated into the national oxygen strategy. The QA framework includes short-term activities related to documentation and SOPs, medium-term activities such as training and audits, and longer-term activities such as increasing staff and improving infrastructure.
