A multi-sectoral approach is essential for ensuring social accountability and a Health in All Policies approach.
A multi-sectoral approach refers to integration across entities whose work intersects and interacts with primary health care (PHC), including governmental bodies, the community, civil society, the private sector, payers, provider associations, and non-governmental organizations. A multi-sectoral approach involves the process of developing relationships that enable stakeholders to work together to address health-related issues and promote well-being, including by regularly soliciting and integrating input from community and subnational leaders into the design, financing, governance, and implementation of PHC as well as effective stewardship and oversight of the private sector in mixed health systems.
PHCPI is a partnership dedicated to transforming the global state of primary health care, beginning with better measurement. While the content in this report represents the position of the partnership as a whole, it does not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of any individual partner organization.
