Prevention of chronic diseases: reorienting primary health systems in India
Mehdi, Ali; Chaudhry, Divya; Tomar, Priyanka; Joshi, Pallavi | May 2016
Primary health systems, however, continue to focus almost exclusively on child mortality. They need to make a health system transition and engage in prevention of chronic diseases – the major cause of adult mortality – together with their original focus on child mortality. This policy brief analyzes some of the major challenges in terms of governance, manpower and financing that such a transition will be faced with, and develops a number of actionable policy recommendations to address them.
