Spurring Improvements in Primary Health Care

The Primary Health Care Performance Initiative (PHCPI) catalyzes improvements in primary health care through better measurement and knowledge sharing, starting with the PHC Vital Signs on this site. 

Primary health care ensures that all people in a community stay healthy and receive care when they need it.

About Missing Data

Primary health care assessment starts with data collection, but it’s rare for any one country to have data for each indicator. In fact, only one country has data for every Vital Signs indicator.
