The study evaluated management preparedness to implement TQM at Primary Health Centre’s.  Center from the perceptive perception of health staff. Methods: This analysis was a systematic, cross sectional study. Structured questionnaires were used to gather information on the demographic characteristics of the centers' randomly selected workers and their performance in five main areas: organizational, Interpersonal, Economic, Facilities and Economic factors. Focus group dialogue by chosen workers was also used.

Number of years of work has an impact on the provision of adequate resources, the efficiency of infrastructure and the computerized database system.TQM has been shown to have improved resource efficiency with the attendant output maximization. It is critical that management show commitment and provide an atmosphere supporting its sustainability. Management should specifically institute periodic performance measurement systems and reinforce the hospital training program.
