Implementing primary health care policy under changing global political conditions: Lessons learned from 4 national settings

van Weel, Chris; Bazemore, Andrew; Garcia - Penãs, Carmen; Roland, Martin; Glazier, Richard H; Phillips, Robert L; Goodyear-Smith, Felicity


Health systems struggle with equitable and affordable health spending. Over-medication, low-value care, poor access and social determinants of health amplify inequity. At the same time, primary health care (PHC) improves efficiency, equity, effectiveness, and population health. Community-based–person- and population-centered care reduces health inequalities. This requires ongoing policy. This paper explores how to secure long-term PHC policies, from policy makers obsessed with “quick wins.”
