Context and Role
The primary health care research consortium (PHCRC) is a global network of experts and organisations whose work is focused on primary health care (PHC) is engaged in conducting prioritized and policy-relevant research to support country and global efforts to build high-quality PHC systems in pursuit of universal health coverage and the Sustainable Development Goals.
The PHCRC has initiated research project around “Identifying effective primary health care service delivery models for integrated management of non-communicable chronic diseases in resource-constrained settings.” It has three-fold aim - to identify key components of PHC service delivery models for NCDs in LMIC settings; to identify what has been learnt by researchers on how to implement these components; and to describe the contextual factors that influence the service delivery models and implementation strategies.
This project provides an innovative opportunity to join together global initiatives focusing on research to improve primary care in LMICs, with Northwestern University a center of excellence in clinical care and implementation research and the George Institute for Global Health which is the secretariat for the PHCRC. There is opportunity for global collaboration, research, and self-development.
