      Primary Health Care for All, Starting with Better Measurement

      As countries around the world commit to providing health to all their people, primary health care is recognized as an urgent and actionable priority. The world’s first-ever UN High-Level Meeting on Universal Health Coverage this September will produce a clear call-to-action for countries to prioritize primary health care as the foundation of universal health coverage. And yet, many countries lack the information and political buy-in to drive the reforms needed to strengthen primary health care and improve health outcomes.  The Primary Health Care Performance Initiative (PHCPI), a partnership dedicated to transforming the global state of primary health care, is positioned to support countries as they work to better measure – and ultimately improve – primary health care systems. PHCPI has already partnered with 12 “Trailblazer Countries” to develop Vital Signs Profiles, which provide a snapshot of the strength of primary health care in individual countries. PHCPI is forging new partnerships with countries across continents, united by the belief that the road to universal health coverage begins with better measurement.  At the 2019 World Health Assembly (WHA) in Geneva, WHO Member States and global health leaders will convene to debate the WHO’s Primary Health Care Toward Universal Health Coverage agenda (WHA A72/12).   Our breakfast conversation will provide an opportunity to:  Hear from Ministry leaders and other key stakeholders on why better data is an essential foundation of primary health care improvement Learn about the PHC Vital Signs Profiles - a tool that provides a snapshot of primary health care systems in individual countries, shining a light on where systems are strong and where they have challenges Showcase experiences and key takeaways that PHCPI Trailblazer countries have had in developing the Vital Signs Profiles
