In 2008, the WHO facilitated the primary health care (PHC) revitalisation agenda. The purpose was to strengthen African health systems in order to address communicable and non-communicable diseases. The authors aimed to assess the position of civil society-led community home based care programmes (CHBC), which serve the needs of patients with HIV, within this agenda. They examined how their roles and place in health systems evolved, and the prospects for these programmes in national policies and strategies to revitalise PHC, as new health care demands arise.
