About the book
Primary healthcare is the provision of a service model that individuals can easily access, close to their homes, and that everyone can benefit from the minimum healthcare package offered in order to maintain their health without paying or with a small fee and to diagnose their diseases early. As agreed at the Alma Ata 1970 and Astana 2018 Primary Health Service meetings, it offers social equality, self-responsibility, international solidarity, integrated service, and team services that work to address life as a whole. In primary care, individuals should be able to access health services from the mother's womb to the last days of old age and receive early diagnosis and rehabilitation services, especially health-promoting and preventive services. Vaccination, access to healthy and clean water, health education, access to birth control methods and access to essential drugs should be among the services providing to individuals in the first step.
Primary health care provides people with the most basic health services to be born in a healthy environment and to maintain their health.
