Delegates from across the world will gather in Kazakhstan in October for the Global Conference on Primary Health Care (PHC) where they will renew a commitment to primary health care and to achieving universal health coverage and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Ahead of the event, applications are being invited from young primary healthcare professionals who are interested in joining a new Primary Health Care (PHC) Young Leaders Network, which will be launched by the World Health Organization (WHO) at the conference.
It is envisaged that the network will create a community of early career PHC professionals from across the world who are actively improving PHC in their local area and are passionate about advocating for primary health care.
The application process is open to PHC professionals including doctors, nurses, midwives, community health workers, social workers, allied health professionals and those involved in pharmaceutical sciences, health policy, economics or public health, who are aged 30 or under or within five years of completion of education or post-graduate training. Successful candidates will be able to demonstrate a commitment to PHC development and advocacy in their own countries. The application process is open until September 15.
