Primary Health Care: The Foundation of Universal Health Coverage 

In recognition of Universal Health Coverage Day, Management Sciences for Health convened a group of policymakers and practitioners on December 15th to examine person-centered primary health care as the foundation of achieving UHC and Sustainable Development Goal 3. Half-way into the lifespan of the SDGs, what needs to be done to ensure that communities are involved in the design of their primary health care systems? What are global best practices for primary health care and what are we learning from them? How can we ensure these experiences are brought to bear as we approach 2030?
