Primary Health Care Management

S L Goel (Author)
Synopsis This book on Primary Health Care Management has been divided into 10 chapters supported by Charts, Tables, Graphs and Case Studies. Chapter 1st examines the nature and meaning of health suggesting the need of new thrust in 21st century. Chapter 2nd deals with nature of primary health care since the Alma Ata declaration. It also examines its likely thrust in the new millennium. Chapters 3-5 examine the features of primary health care or pillars of primary health care like Community participation, Inter-Sectoral Co-ordination, Appropriate Technology and Administrative researches. Lack of understanding of these features has been responsible for partial success of primary health care and its not achieving its goal-Health for All by the year 2000. The author has given concrete suggestions based on case studies to make these features a reality. Chapter 6 examines the relationships of primary health care with sectors of socio-economic development with a thrust on social development-enrichment of the quality of life. The main plank of this chapter is to take steps to promote economic development via social development. Chapters 7 and 8 examine the quantity and quality of human and financial resources required for primary health care with a thrust on innovative approaches. Chapter 9 examines the referral system-a linking pin among different levels of primary health care and secondary and tertiary healthcare. Lastly, chapter 10 examines the working of primary health care: a case study of Punjab. The thrust of all the chapters has been to focus on development and management of Primary Health Care and the issues likely to be encountered in the 21st century. “ Dr. Goel has examined the nature of Primary Health Care, especially features like community participation, Inter-Sectoral co-ordination, appropriate technology, human and financial resources and the referral system. Throughout the book, facts and figures have been presented in a vivid and interesting manner. I am sure that this book will benefit and help the policy-makers, health administrators and students of health services management.”
