Core Indicators

These 38 indicators assess different aspects of how a country's primary health care (PHC) system is performing across five categories - overall systemic factors, inputs, service delivery, outputs, and outcomes.

System

Is primary health care prioritized in your health system?

Inputs

Does your system offer sufficient facilities, health care professionals, and supplies?

Service Delivery

Are services accessible and effectively organized, managed, and coordinated to deliver high quality care?

Outputs

Does your system provide the essential services you need throughout each phase of life?

Outcomes

Does your system efficiently deliver better outcomes and greater equity?

Notes

Data: To learn more about our Core Indicators data click here, or e-mail us at info@improvingphc.org to provide feedback. Visit the Indicator Library for detailed descriptions of the rationale, construction, and limitations of Core indicators. Download VSP Indicator Descriptions (link at top) for details on VSP indicators. Indicator values presented on the VSP may differ from country data sources due to the use of standardized categories and methods to enhance international comparability. See Indicator Description Sheet for details.

Color coding: Scores for the Capacity, Performance, and Equity domains are color-coded to reflect good (green), medium (yellow), and poor (red) performance, where comparable data are available. Cut-offs can be found in the VSP Indicator Description Sheets. Scores based on data from non-comparable sources are colored gray. Finance indicators are not color-coded because these indicators lack common targets.

Capacity domain: The PHC Progression Model uses mixed methods to assess foundational capacities of PHC on a scale from 1 (low) to 4 (high).

Access Index and Quality Index: Because different data/indicators are used in each country, composite index values may not be comparable across countries. Click on the arrows to see the specific indicators used in this VSP.
