Transforming PHC Delivery and Financing Through Primary Care Networks

March 23, 2023

As countries work to improve access to and utilization of essential health services for their populations, many are undertaking health system transformations to prioritize and strengthen primary health care (PHC). Between 2020 and 2021, in partnership with the Joint Learning Network for Universal Health Coverage (JLN), the Primary Health Care Performance Initiative (PHCPI) and Results for Development (R4D) launched a Community of Practice (COP) that facilitated two peer Learning Exchange communities, dedicated to fostering action-oriented shared learning focused on best practices in measuring and strengthening PHC systems across countries.

This learning brief highlights the process for developing this learning community and some of the key learnings on how to successfully implement PCNs. Furthermore, it provides key recommendations for country policymakers, practitioners, and development partners based on lessons from the PHCPI COP.
