Dr Hernan Montenegro, Health Systems Advisor at World Health Organization shares key messages from his seminar on the role of primary health care in the context of the larger health system. He talks about the benefits of having health systems with a strong primary health care approach and the impacts of effective primary health care on equity and overall population health.

Professor Walter Rosser from School of Medicine, Queen’s University, Canada discusses key points from his roundtable discussion on unlocking the potential of General Practice. Professor Walter has been central to the reform of primary health care in Ontario, Canada. He tells the story of a journey from traditional medical services provided on a fee for service basis to the creation of multidisciplinary Family Health Teams.

Professor Nancy Edwards, Scientific Director Canadian Institutes of Health Research, Professor, University of Ottawa. Nancy presented on ‘Contexts, systems and networks: Key considerations in joining up and integrating implementation research to improve population health outcomes', commencing at slide 9 of the presentation.
