The book examines 13 cases of efforts to implement comprehensive primary health care reforms in communities around the globe, including in Australia, Brazil, Democratic Republic of Congo, South Africa, and Iran. The case studies originated from an international research-to-action initiative that brought researchers and research-users from national public health systems together to design, implement, and assess local projects. This volume reveals the similarities among comprehensive primary health care projects in diverse national contexts and offers a rich evidence base from which future reform initiatives can draw.
