Excellent Care for All

Change in Action - Health Promotion and Primary Care

Keeping people healthy in the first place is better than treating them once they become sick. Building a healthy and resilient population, not only improves people’s well-being and quality of life, it also supports the sustainability of the health system. Healthy people require fewer health care resources and recover more quickly when they do get sick. A greater focus on health promotion and health prevention is essential to health system transformation. Primary care is the first line of defence in keeping people healthy. Primary care providers are key partners in achieving and advancing a high quality, sustainable system.
