Abstract: The Regional Consultation on Strengthening Health Systems through PHC approach was convened as a follow-up to the discussion of 54th World Health Assembly A54/12 on Strengthening Health Systems in Developing Countries and Resolution SEAR/RC55/R3 on Management of Decentralization of Health Care. Major common issues emerged out of the consultation are: limited coverage of quality health services, inadequate health financing, shortage and inequitable distribution of health workforce and weak health management, particularly at the district level. Priority activities to be strengthened in the PHC services include: comprehensive preventive - promotive packages, essential curative package depending on available funds, epidemiology and community requirements and overall advocacy, information education and communication, orientation to screen and detect early the non-communicable diseases.
