A Rejuvenation of Primary Health Care GuptaSN*,

Primary health care refers to the essential health care provided as the basic level of effective contact
between the individual and the health care system. Globally, we have built a strong health care system,
and have achieved a level of health of which we are all proud. A majority of prevailing health problems
can be satisfactorily prevented and managed, with approaches to a spectrum of services beyond the
traditional health care system that play a part in health, including income, housing, education, and
environment. This approach represents a philosophy of health care and a model for providing health
services.
