He is affiliated to the International Federation of Medical Students Associations (IFMSA), cordial partner of The Sting.

The concept of primary health care (PHC) has been accepted by all countries as the key to the attainment of Health for All.

It has also been accepted as an integral part of the country’s health system. So, According to The Alma-Ata international conference, which gave primary health care a wider meaning : “Primary health care is essential health care made universally accessible to individuals and acceptable to them, through their full participation and at a cost the community and country can afford”. otherwise Primary care health workforce is ideally multidisciplinary and may include family doctors, nurses, community health workers, physician assistants, rehabilitation workers, nutritionists, care managers, social workers, pharmacists, dentists, traditional healers and support staff.

Thus, like that “Child is the father of man“, written William Wordsworth, then to allow the young health care workers to learn from their seniors by providing them with health education experiences, and control skills over careers in primary health care and specialization can be a way to increases the options available to ensure the effectiveness for the best delivering primary health care in the future.

However, how to promote PHC to the young health workforce? like an answers element, we can promote PHC to the young health workforce by an opening of the young network health workforces and also Improving the conditions of work of all primary care health workforce.

To promote PHC to the young health workforce by an opening of the young network health workforce, At the Global Conference on Primary Health Care in Astana, WHO launched the PHC Young Leaders Network which is a community of early career PHC professionals from across the world, who are passionate about advocating for primary healthcare. The promote primary healthcare to this young health workforce will be done for example by :

– Attendance at the Global Conference on Primary Health Care, including travel and accommodation grant.

– provide to the Young Leaders the Future mentorship and internship opportunities .

Otherwise, To promote primary healthcare to the young health workforce by a Improving the conditions of work of All primary care health workforce can be done by improve remuneration, recognition and access to clinical resources.

So, these few elements can contribute to motivation of the promote primary healthcare to the young health workforces.
