The UHC-PHC Self-Assessment Tool is a rapid diagnostic instrument for identifying practical policy opportunities in the health system to improve the relationship between health financing and PHC efforts. The tool can be useful for improving coordination among health financing and PHC efforts in countries around the world. It is most suitable for locations in which (a) the government is not sufficiently prioritizing PHC efforts, (b) PHC efforts work poorly or are not coordinated with health financing mechanisms, and, especially, (c) communication among the relevant stakeholders is limited.
