Affordability Strategies of PHC 1.Reducing excess mortality of poor marginalized populations: PHC must ensure access to health services for the most disadvantaged populations, and focus on interventions which will directly impact on the major causes of mortality, morbidity and disability for those populations. 2. Reducing the leading risk factors to human health: PHC, through its preventative and health promotion roles, must address those known risk factors, which are the major determinants of health outcomes for local populations. Strategies contd.

3. Developing Sustainable Health Systems: PHC as a component of health systems must develop in ways, which are financially sustainable, supported by political leaders, and supported by the populations served. 4. Developing an enabling policy and institutional environment: PHC policy must be integrated with other policy domains, and play its part in the pursuit of wider social, economic, environmental and development policy. Evaluation of HFA : 1979-2006 Reasons

for slow progress: Insufficient political commitment Failure to achieve equity in acess to all PHC components The continuing low status of women Slow socio- economic development Difficulty in achieving inter sectoral action for Health Unbalanced distribution of resources

Reasons for slow progress (contd.) Widespread inequity of health promotion efforts Weak health information systems and lack of baseline data Pollution, poor food safety, and lack of water supply and sanitation

Rapid demographic and epidemiological changes Inappropriate use and allocation of resources for high cost technology Natural and man made disasters Obstacles to the implementation of the PHC strategy Misinterpretation of the PHC concept Misconception that PHC is a 2nd rate health care for the poor.
