From recent pronouncements made by the Department of Health (DOH) it would appear that the DOH has recently discovered primary health care (PHC), or at worst recently re-discovered PHC. The work to strengthen PHC builds on the good practices that existed in the past but also provides greater focus as well as greater political support for PHC.A three stream priority approach to re-engineering of PHC was adapted. These three streams are: Deployment of ward based PHC outreach teams; Strengthening school health services; and Deployment of district based clinical specialist teams. The latest development on the PHC re-engineering projects are presented here.
