Leveraging COVID-19 Investments in Community-based Primary Health Care for Long Term SDG Gains

July 14, 2020

RSVP

Accelerated investments in community-based primary health care (PHC) are critical to COVID-19 response and achieving SDG3. PHC can meet more than 80% of people’s health needs. Frontline health workers are the backbone of PHC, delivering care directly to communities and playing a pivotal role in preventing, monitoring, and responding to COVID-19. This virtual side event will bring together Ministry of Health officials and frontline health workers from the Global South in an interactive conversation to share successful strategies in strengthening community-based PHC, and to discuss how investments can be leveraged into long term SDG gains by countries reporting progress at the HLPF.
