A key set of goals of primary health care (PHC) includes equity, effectiveness and affordability.
By equity, we mean universal coverage and care according to need; by effectiveness, that the system has a favorable impact on mortality and serious morbidity; by affordability, that the system is within the budgetary reach of goverment and communities.
There are other requirements of PHC as well: that the system be socially and culturally acceptable, and that communities are active participants in the development and implementation of the system.
