The Quick Investigation of Quality (QIQ) was initiated in response to the need for a low-cost, practical means to routinely measure quality of care (QC) in family planning services. Many USAID cooperation agencies contribted to the process of identifying a "short list" of QC indicators, developing the set of instruments to measure them, and field testing the intruments in Ecuador, Turkey, Uganda, and Zimbabwe. This compilation includes an overview of the field test, country reports from each of the four countries, methodological lessons learned, an examination of the cost and practicality of the methodology, and recommendations for future applications.
