About the event
Policymakers will convene at the Global Conference on Primary Health Care in Astana later this month to mark the 40th anniversary of the Declaration of Alma-Ata and renew their commitments to building strong primary health care (PHC) systems. While there has been tremendous progress in deploying PHC services to improve health outcomes in low- and middle-income countries, there are major gaps between aspirations and reality. The renewed global commitment in Astana is an opportunity to underscore why and how a proactive focus on PHC can be central to the UHC2030 agenda.
This webcast will assess major outcomes emerging from Astana, provide a reality check on challenges countries are facing, and reflect on the role of the global health community going forward.
