IPHC-E Resource Center

Welcome to the Resource Center page. Here you will find resources to help you navigate the vibrant primary health care, community health, public health and related disciplines.

The IPHC-E Resource Center is building a global hub of resources relating to primary health care (PHC) to share knowledge, information and promising practices. To this end, the Resource Center serves as an online repository of learning and resource sharing in primary health care. The Resource Center has pulled together key resources and is comprised of various websites and webpages to increase knowledge and to inform healthcare professionals, health program designers and implementers, policy makers, researchers, managers and anyone else working in, or interested in primary health care. In addition, the profiles of organizations, network groups, campaigns, programs and other entities working on health and PHC thematic areas at national, regional and global levels are included with external links to their websites and resources. You will also find links to research, evidence-based practices and innovations to help you learn the latest developments in PHC implementation. It is hoped that the curated resources will enable you to play an essential role to transform primary health care to enhance the health of communities.
