  1. The Pholela Health Centre : the origins of community-oriented primary health care (COPC) : an appreciation of the work of Sidney and Emily Kark.

    Article - En anglais

    The health centre practice pioneered by Sidney and Emily Kark and their colleagues at Pholela during the 1940s was a forerunner of and direct contributor to what later emerged as « the primary health care approach ».

    This article gives a detailed account of the context, work and methodologies used at the Pholela Health Centre, emphasising the development of concepts that are now well recognised and described as community-oriented primary health care (COPC).

    COPC remains highly relevant to health service development in South Africa today.
