This guidance focuses on steps countries might take to strengthen the response of primary health care to more effectively address the challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic. It includes strategic directions for adapting primary healthcare to better address the COVID-19: integrate the primary health care more prominently into the overall public health response to COVID-19; adapt the roles and responsibilities of primary health care to better respond to COVID-19; maintain the delivery of essential (non-COVID-19) primary health care services during the pandemic.
