In order to standardize procedures to evaluate and improve the health department in each center we have developed this certificate. The certificate is based on the study, observation and improvement of 5 areas through an audit carried out by The Apple Project. The maximum score of each area is 5 stars. Each area is divided into 5 subareas.
The fulfillment of each of these sub-areas will count as a complete star of the certain area.
Finally, in each certificate the average of compliance of all the areas and the detailed analysis of each area will be given.
