  23. 23.  Many countries are already making progress towards UHC. All countries can take actions to move more rapidly towards it, or to maintain the gains they have already made.  Moving towards UHC requires strengthening health systems in all countries. Robust financing structures are key. When people have to pay most of the cost for health services out of their own pockets, the poor are often unable to obtain many of the services they need, and even the rich may be exposed to financial hardship in the event of severe or long-term illness. 7/15/2019www.nursingpath.in 23
  24. 24.  Improving health service coverage and health outcomes depends on the availability, accessibility, and capacity of health workers to deliver quality people-centred integrated care.  Investments in quality primary health care will be the cornerstone for achieving UHC around the world. Investing in the primary health care workforce is the most cost-effective way to ensure access to essential health care will improve.  Good governance, sound systems of procurement and supply of medicines and health technologies and well-functioning health information systems are other critical elements. 7/15/2019www.nursingpath.in 24
  25. 25. Key facts  Primary health care can cover the majority of a person’s health needs throughout their life including prevention, treatment, rehabilitation and palliative care.  At least half of the world’s people still lack full coverage of essential health services.  A fit-for-purpose workforce is essential to deliver primary health care, yet the world has an estimated shortfall of 18 million health workers.  Of the 30 countries for which data are available, only 8 spend at least US$ 40 per person on primary health care per year. 7/15/2019www.nursingpath.in 25
  26. 26.  Primary health care is a whole-of-society approach to health and well-being centred on the needs and preferences of individuals, families and communities. It addresses the broader determinants of health and focuses on the comprehensive and interrelated aspects of physical, mental and social health and wellbeing.  It provides whole-person care for health needs throughout the lifespan, not just for a set of specific diseases. Primary health care ensures people receive comprehensive care - ranging from promotion and prevention to treatment, rehabilitation and palliative care - as close as feasible to people’s everyday environment. 7/15/2019www.nursingpath.in 26
  27. 27.  Primary health care is rooted in a commitment to social justice and equity and in the recognition of the fundamental right to the highest attainable standard of health, as echoed in Article 25 of the Universal Declaration on Human Rights: “Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and wellbeing of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services […]”.  The concept of primary health care has been repeatedly reinterpreted and redefined. In some contexts, it has referred to the provision of ambulatory or first-level of personal health care services. In other contexts, primary health care has been understood as a set of priority health interventions for low-income populations (also called selective primary health care). Others have understood primary health care as an essential component of human development, focusing on the economic, social and political aspects. 7/15/2019www.nursingpath.in 27
  28. 28.  Primary health care is well-positioned to respond to rapid economic, technological, and demographic changes, all of which impact health and well-being.  Primary health care has been proven to be a highly effective and efficient way to address the main causes and risks of poor health and well-being today, as well as handling the emerging challenges that threaten health and well-being tomorrow.  Stronger primary health care is essential to achieving the health-related Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and universal health coverage. 7/15/2019www.nursingpath.in 28
  29. 29. WHO recognizes the central role of primary health care for achieving health and well-being for all, at all ages. WHO works with countries to:  Identify priority areas for improving health and context-specific approaches which draw on the technical expertise across the WHO.  Support countries to develop inclusive policies, in country leadership and health systems based on primary health care which promote health equity and works towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals and universal health coverage.  Address the wider inequity and social determinants of health through multisectoral action. 7/15/2019www.nursingpath.in 29
  30. 30.  Health is a human right; it’s time for health for all. 7/15/2019www.nursingpath.in 30
  31. 31.  About 100 million people are pushed into extreme poverty each year because of out-of- pocket spending on health. 7/15/2019www.nursingpath.in 31
  32. 32.  Primary health care should be the first level of contact with the health system, where individuals, families and communities receive most of their health care— from promotion and prevention to treatment, rehabilitation and palliative care—as close as possible to where they live and work. 7/15/2019www.nursingpath.in 32
  33. 33.  Health workers have a crucial role to play educating patients on how to take care of their health, coordinating care and advocating for their patients’ needs to health facility managers and policy-makers. 7/15/2019www.nursingpath.in 33
  34. 34.  The member states of WHO have endorsed universal coverage as an important goal for the development of health financing system but, in order to achieve this long-term solution, flexible short-term responses are needed.  There is no universal formula. Indeed, for many countries, it will take some years to achieve universal coverage and the path is complex.  The responses each country takes will be determined partly by their own histories and the way their health financial systems have developed to date, as well as by social preference relating to concepts of solidarity 7/15/2019www.nursingpath.in 34
