Advancing Primary Health Care: African Leadership and Accountability on the Road to UHC

Organised by Primary Health Care Performance Initiative and The Access Challenge: One by One: Target 2030 Campaign.


Strong primary health care (PHC) is a foundation of UHC and improving PHC begins with better measurement.  In late 2018, at the Global Conference on Primary Health care in Astana, Kazakhstan, 12 Trailblazer countries joined with the Primary Health Care Performance Initiative (PHCPI) to launch the Vital Signs Profiles – a unique snapshot of countries’ PHC systems.  The Vital Signs Profiles gives policymakers, advocates, citizens, and donors information they need to improve primary health care – helping them prioritize resources and policies to deliver on the promise of health for all.

Join PHCPI for a dynamic session to:

  • Learn more about the Vital Signs Profiles
  • Hear from Trailblazer country representatives about their experiences piloting this new measurement approach
  • Explore with civil society representatives how advocates can use this information to push for better policies and more investment in quality PHC
