Comprehensive Primary Health Care (CPHC) is a framework conceived as a global strategy to reduce inequities in health between and within nations and emphasising community action. Comprehensive primary health care helps in identification and response to social factors which mainly influence health which in turn impact on the key determinants of health. Comprehensive Primary Health care is an approach to health care that highlights social justice, equity, community control and social change. The emphasis is on identifying, intervening or managing factors that generate ill health not on intervention and treatment of health conditions. It includes but is not limited to health promotion, education, early detection and intervention, treatment of acute episodes and ongoing management of chronic conditions.
