Pandemic proofing primary health care

February 24, 2021 by PATH

Resilient primary health care (PHC) systems are the world’s first and best defense against the spread of infectious disease—and our best chance of achieving universal health coverage. The doctors, nurses, and community health workers who staff PHC systems can help control the current pandemic and guard against the next, but they need the multi-pronged support of local governments, the private sector, and the global health community to do it.
