The concept of Comprehensive Primary Health Care (CPHC) focuses on health system efforts to improve equity in healthcare access, community empowerment, participation of marginalized groups, and actions on the social determinants of health. Despite its existence since the late 1970s, very few studies have been able to highlight the outcomes of this concept – until now. Revitalizing Health for All examines 13 case studies chronicling efforts to implement CPHC reforms from countries around the globe, including Australia, Brazil, Democratic Republic of Congo, Iran, South Africa, and more.
