The Future of Health Systems: Primary Health Care as a Long-Term Investment

Monday, June 5, 2023 10:00 am - 11:00 am EST

Attention to primary health care (PHC) has grown for several years and accelerated post-COVID. Reasons are clear: Primary health care can meet 90% of a person's health needs throughout their lifetime. For many countries, making the case for and sustaining primary health care services requires stronger health systems that incentivize ongoing investment in PHC. During this first webinar in The Future of Health Systems series, panelists will explore how we can both tackle immediate primary care needs and invest in lasting systemic change through a whole-of-society approach.
