“I am passionately in favor of Primary Health Care because I believe we need to have in place well-functioning health systems that are:
• Able to protect the population under any circumstances;
• Resistant and resilient in the face of crises;
• Capable of reacting rapidly and developing urgent strategies;
• Skilled at rebuilding themselves as necessary to respond to current and future challenges arising from demographic and epidemiological changes.
Only such health systems will lead us to achieve health gains that are sustainable and have reasonable costs, while ensuring equitable access to health care. Because of that, I do not think there is any primitiveness in the PHC approach –nor there should be, for that matter. On the contrary, it is a crucial instrument to help all countries.”
