Standards represent benchmarks against which improvements can be measured. In 2016, the Federal Ministry of Health developed and endorsed a set of standards entitled the Ethiopian Health Center Reform Implementation Guidelines (EHCRIGs). This study aims to assess the effects of planned interventions on performance and quality of services in primary health care units (PHCUs).

The implementation of the standards has garnered significant improvements in performance at the primary health care level. Therefore, continuing the initiated strengthening of health system performance against the standards and evaluation of the quality of primary health services is recommended.
