Access to health care must be universal, guaranteed for all on an equitable basis. Adequate health care infrastructure (e.g. hospitals, community health facilities, trained healthcare professionals), goods (e.g. drugs, equipment), and services (e.g. primary care, mental health) must be available in all geographical areas and to all communities. Health care must be accessible and provided without discrimination (in intent or effect) based on health status, race, ethnicity, education, age, sex, sexuality, disability, language, religion, national origin, income, or other status. Additionally, IFMSA stresses the indispensable role that primary health care has in each of these services as it holds the capacity for each medical practitioner to provide all these services throughout the life courses of their patients. Primary health care serves as the link between the population and specialized care, it enables greater access to services, better quality of care, with a greater focus on prevention and early management of diseases.
