Sharing knowhow and joining forces towards Health for All

Primary Health Care

"There is a substantial body of evidence on the comparative advantages, in terms of effectiveness and efficiency, of health care organized as people centred primary care. Despite variations in the specific terminology, its characteristic features (person-centredness, comprehensiveness and integration, continuity of care, and participation of patients, families and communities) are well identified. Care that exhibits these features requires health services that are organized accordingly, with close-to-client multidisciplinary teams that are responsible for a defined population, collaborate with social services and other sectors, and coordinate the contributions of hospitals, specialists and community organizations." (WHO)
