The WHO and UNICEF Operational Framework for Primary Health Care has been approved by the World Health Assembly 73.
WHO Member States recommended the adoption of several resolutions in the 73rd World Health Assembly. Committee A, which focuses on programme and budget matters, noted the Operational Framework for Primary Health Care, which aligns with the Declaration of Astana and resolution WHA72.2 (2019). WHO has established a Special Programme on Primary Health Care to roll out the Operational Framework – supporting Member States to build people-centred, resilient and sustainable primary health care-based health systems. This Operational framework for PHC outlines a series of levers that can be actioned to align health systems according to a PHC approach. The Operational Framework can be found at the WHO website in 6 different languages.
