It’s time to transform the global state of primary health care.

Primary health care is ‘primary’ for a reason. It is the foundation of strong health systems that can help countries realize their biggest health goals: achieving universal health coverage, building resilience to future health threats, and improving population health and well-being overall. 

This website offers resources and content developed by the Primary Health Care Performance Initiative to support policymakers, health systems managers, and advocates to catalyze primary health care investments and improvements where they are needed most.
