Promising Practices

Countries seeking to strengthen the performance of their primary health care (PHC) system can pursue a wide array of potential improvement pathways. Through an examination of the existing literature, the short case studies here highlight promising and innovative approaches that some countries have taken to strengthen PHC performance. These case studies focus on describing how countries have addressed specific aspects of service delivery, from strengthening financial access to engaging communities to delivering high quality, person-centered care. PHCPI will continue to post great examples of strong PHC systems around the world and synthesize their experience into improvement ideas for other countries.
