|Abstract:||Improving access to high-quality health care is one of the seven priorities for health system strengthening in the Eastern Mediterranean Region. Experience from across the world has shown that the family practice approach can increase household’s access to a defined package of quality health services at an affordable cost. The purpose of this document is to provide insight to public health policy-makers and managers of what it takes to introduce or strengthen family practice programmes as the principal approach for the delivery of quality and effective health care services and to help realize commitments made in national health policies and strategies for moving towards universal health coverage.|
