Second International Conference on Primary Health Care:
Towards Universal Health Coverage and the Sustainable Development Goals
Consultation on the Declaration

In 2018, 40 years after the Declaration of Alma-Ata, Member States, people, civil society and international development partners will commit to strengthening primary health care to achieve universal health coverage and the Sustainable Development Goals. Our collective commitment and action are required in order to achieve this goal. In this inclusive spirit, we hope you will share your comments on the new Declaration on primary health care. 

Following this period of public consultation, the Declaration will be reviewed by the International Advisory Group on Primary Health Care for Universal Health Coverage on April 26-27.  An updated draft Declaration will then undergo an informal consultation process with Member States in Geneva, Switzerland starting in May.

The public call for comments will be open until 12h midnight CEST on April 23, 2018.  Thank you in advance for your input.

Together, we can achieve Health for All.
