Primary Health Care Strengthening Program

The Program to Strengthen Primary Health Care aims to promote innovative initiatives to strengthen and improve the quality and efficiency of health services, with a special focus on combating Chronic Non-Communicable Diseases (CNCDs) and associated risk factors.

The program supports strategies to improve coordination between the different levels of health care, ensure adequate qualification of referrals and counter-referrals, and expand health care. In order to increase access to health services, it is betting on initiatives based on cost-effectiveness, taking advantage of the potential of digital technologies, such as remote monitoring, telehealth and other tools, to offer a comprehensive and proactive approach.

In addition, it emphasizes the proper use of available data to support managers’ decisions, promoting informed and effective management.
