Pandemic-proofing primary health care

Hosted by PATH

The COVID-19 pandemic underscored the critical importance of resilient primary health care (PHC) systems—the world’s first and best defense against the spread of infectious disease. What have we learned from this pandemic? And how can the public health community strengthen PHC to guard against the next one? During this satellite session, public health leaders will discuss how communities, local governments, private sector, and public health organizations can help build people-centered, pandemic-proofed PHC systems for all.
