Public Consultation on Draft Declaration on Primary Health Care

6 July, 2018

[Note from HIFA moderator (Neil PW): Further to our discussions on HIFA in April in relation to the previous draft, this is a second and very welcome opportunity to comment further on a new version of the Draft Declaration on Primary Health Care]

Help us achieve health for all!

This 25 & 26 October, the Global Conference on Primary Health Care will be hosted by the Government of Kazakhstan, the World Health Organization and the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) in Astana, Kazakhstan. The Conference aims to strengthen primary health care as the foundation for UHC, seizing new opportunities and building on evidence of what works. The Conference provides Member States, people, civil society, health professionals, international development partners and other stakeholders the opportunity to renew support for primary health care.

Primary health care matters to everyone, everywhere. We hope you and/or your organization will participate in the public consultation on the new Draft Declaration on Primary Health Care. The call will be open until midnight CEST on 22 July 2018. Please consider sharing information about the consultation through your networks.
