The National Initiative for Children's Healthcare Quality (NICHQ) is an action-oriented organization dedicated solely to improving the quality of health care provided to children. Founded in 1999, NICHQ's mission is to eliminate the gap between what is and what can be in health care for all children. A national organization with its home office in Cambridge, NICHQ also works with staff and faculty across the country.
NICHQ's efforts focus on its four part improvement agenda:
-Prevention of childhood obesity
-Promoting evidence based, family centered care for children with chronic conditions
-Purging harm from children's health care
-Promoting equity in care and outcomes for all children
