The Astana Declaration revives attention and commitment to primary health care (PHC) and yet, 40 years post-Alma Ata, community health platforms still are not fully integrated into formal health systems nor consistently prioritized for investment as part of national health strategies. Community approaches, including engagement of civil society and communities themselves, are essential to advancing equity, including gender equity, and achieving PHC for all.
Please join USAID’s flagship Maternal and Child Survival Program (MCSP) in person or online for a morning event at the CORE Group Global Health Practitioner Conference on Monday, May 6 from 9:30AM-11:30AM to discuss the importance of strengthening and scaling community health interventions to save the lives of mothers and children. MCSP and partners will discuss and highlight global and country progress as well as the unfinished agenda for institutionalizing community health within national health systems. This event will be live streamed for remote viewing and a link will be made available to registered participants prior to the event.
The official program will commence at 9:30AM with registration and breakfast starting at 9:00AM. Lunch will be offered following the event.
