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?
