Primary health care is celebrating a big birthday this year, marking 40 years since the signing of the Declaration of Alma-Ata. On this occasion, the WHO European Regional Office journal Public Health Panorama* will publish a special issue on primary health care: putting principles in practice towards universal health coverage. 

This special issue sets out to capture the progress made in advancing primary health care principles in the different models of family medicine, general practice, ambulatory and first contact care in the WHO European Region. Papers in the form of research articles, reports, policy and practice, case studies and short communications are welcome. Manuscripts may be submitted in either English or Russian, and accepted papers will be published in both languages. Deadline for submissions is 20 June 2018.
