This report was commissioned by WHO to address the relevance of primary health care (PHC) in a changing world. It addresses three questions: what contribution does WHO see PHC being able to make, at Member State level, in improving the health of populations in the future? How should WHO be helping countries to optimize the contribution PHC can make to improve population health? and, What capacities will WHO need to operate in that way? The first four sections of the report summarise the context for, and outcomes from, the global PHC reviews (undertaken by each regional office) to date. The remaining sections then suggest a range of possible future strategic directions which could inform policy development for PHC, particularly at country level
