Alma-Ata and after.

Author information

Russian Academy of Medical Sciences, Moscow, Russian Federation.


The Alma-Ata Conference on Primary Health Care in 1978 marked a turning point in WHO's history and in international cooperation in health. Attempts to put the decisions of that conference into practice have not always been successful, but the principles that were formulated then remain as valid as ever. The author, who was one of the main moving spirits behind this unique event, puts things into perspective.
