About this Unit
This unit explores the impact and relevance of Primary Health Care in its context as a World Health Organization (WHO) strategy for achieving “Health for All”. It examines the ways in which Primary Health Care, along with other significant WHO initiatives, provides a framework for the organisation of just and humane health care systems and provides an opportunity for detailed discussion of the complex factors that impact on the health status of populations. The integration of associated theoretical concepts will enable an understanding of the complex dimensions of health and well-being to evolve and then to inform health care practices and the planning of programs that can lead to sustainable health within a primary health care framework.
