Global Conference on Primary Health Care, 25-26 October 2018

From Alma-Ata towards universal health coverage and the Sustainable Development Goals

On 25-26 October 2018, the world will come together in Astana, Kazakhstan at the Global Conference on Primary Health Care to renew a commitment to primary health care to achieve universal health coverage and the Sustainable Development Goals.  The Conference is cohosted by the Government of Kazakhstan, WHO and UNICEF. 

In 1978, a pivotal conference was held in Almaty, Kazakhstan, bringing together health experts and world leaders to commit to health for all. The Declaration of Alma-Ata, endorsed at that conference, formed the foundation for the last 40 years of global primary health care efforts.This October, the world will reunite to reinvigorate and reaffirm primary health care. The Global Conference will endorse a new declaration which emphasizes the critical role of primary health care around the world, refocusing efforts to ensure that everyone everywhere is able to enjoy the highest possible attainable standard of health. 

The movement towards health for all is international – what is discussed in the Global Conference on Primary Health Care will resonate around the world.  From patient to provider, from policy maker to educator – it doesn’t matter who you are or where you are from, primary health care is important to us all.
