Last year the Community-Based Primary Health Care (CBPHC) Pre-Conference took place at the Georgia World Congress Center. We addressed the question: Why are CBPHC and CHWs often either an underfunded afterthought, or left out in favor of “sexier” vertical interventions like mosquito nets for all, or hospital care, despite the accumulated evidence in the literature demonstrating their effectiveness for increasing health equity?

Our keynote speaker, Stanley O. Foster, spoke on how we can strengthen community ownership of health and well-being – an essential element to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals to transform our world. We looked over new evidence for the effectiveness of CBPHC. Students presented posters and engaged with an interactive panel while networking with experienced members of the CBPHC Community.
