The World Health Organization (WHO) has revealed that a persistent rise has been seen in most of the infectious diseases, non-communicable diseases (NCD), and nutritional disorders, especially in developing countries. Owing to the impending globalization, developments in the health care delivery system, and rising level of awareness among the people, maintaining a sustained level of quality of care which is accessible and available to all is of prime importance. Accreditation is described as a systematic process by which a recognized body, assesses and recognizes that a health care organization meets predetermined standards. Multiple benefits have been documented secondary to the accreditation of a hospital or a health care establishment. To conclude, accreditation is an international phenomenon and thus should be designed, regulated, and monitored properly to ensure expansion of the health sector and delivery of quality assured health care services to all.
