Achievements, challenges and missing pieces in the progress of this critical element in our national reform program

Our first National Primary Health Care Strategy was released in 2010, after 2 years of consultation, development and review. In keeping with the National Health and Hospitals Reform Commission report the year before, it identified a strong and evolving primary health care system, anchored by general practice, as being “critical to the future success and sustainability of our entire health care system”.
