Nurses, Midwives & Allies...contribute to the next Alma Ata declaration on primary health care

By Maggie Sullivan Moderator | 17 Jul, 2018

During the World Health Organization's open consultation period this week, please consider adding your voice to the upcoming Alma Ata declaration on Primary Health Care. Nurses and midwives sustain primary health care the world over - our experiences, perspectives and advice matter.

From WHO:
On 25-26 October 2018, the world will come together to renew a commitment to strengthening primary health care to achieve universal health coverage and the Sustainable Development Goals.

We have received over 500 comments on the Draft Declaration on Primary Health Care and incorporated them in this updated draft. This Declaration, which describes the need for Primary Health Care to address today’s health challenges, affects the health of everyone! We are reopening Public Consultation to ensure we hear from a broad range of stakeholders. We would like to hear from you. From patient to provider, from policy maker to educator - it doesn't matter who you are or where you are from, primary health care is important to us all. The comment period will be open until 22 July at midnight CEST.

En espanol:
Este año, el mundo se reunirá en la Conferencia Mundial sobre Atención Primaria de Salud a fin de comprometerse de nuevo para reforzar la atención primaria de salud y alcanzar la cobertura sanitaria universal y los Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible. La Conferencia, que organizarán conjuntamente el Gobierno de Kazajstán, la Organización Mundial de la Salud y el UNICEF, se celebrará los días 25 y 26 de octubre con ocasión del 40.º aniversario de la Declaración de Alma-Ata.

La conmemoración de este hito fundamental para la salud mundial será una oportunidad para reafirmar los principios de la declaración inicial y subrayar la importancia que tiene la atención primaria para alcanzar nuestros objetivos colectivos para el siglo XXI. (Enlace abajo)
