Geneva WHO meeting on Primary Health Care with the presence of EFPC chair Prof Jan De Maeseneer

Prof Jan De Maeseneer has been invited for a high level meeting at the WHO Geneva Headquarters early April. The meeting with the title "Primary Health Care improvement global stakeholder meeting" is an initiative of the WHO Service Delivery & Safety department and is a result of recent collaborative efforts by international development agencies to draw attention to Primary Health Care like the Primary Health Care Performance Initiative (PHCPI).

Besides Prof Jan De Maeseneer also other EFPC members have been invited which provides us the opportunity to support these developments with knowledge on how to achieve best results in the care for persons and populations.

The meeting has three purposes:

  1. Create a platform for shared learning on national and subnational measurement and on use of information for improving PHC;
  2. Refine a work plan for improved PHC performance measurement including research and development of less measured domains of quality PHC and incorporation of these measures into existing measurement platforms; and
  3. Review and shape strategy for PHC improvement efforts including the development of relevant guidance and tools and the WHO Global Challenge on Primary Health Care Improvement.
