Summary
Reviews what has been learned about the strengths and weaknesses of the primary health care approach since its adoption, at the Alma-Ata conference in 1978, as a formal strategy for improving world health. Addressed to health advocates and policy makers, the review concentrates on specific revisions in policy and strategy needed to ensure that the primary health care approach remains valid in the 1990s and beyond. More than 200 references to the specialist literature are included in this carefully argued assessment.
