Summer schools in Angers

Primary Care

According to World Health Organization, primary care is a model of care that supports first-contact, accessible, continuous, comprehensive and coordinated person-focused care. Primary care has been shown to meet most of a person’s health needs throughout their life. Primary care provides promotive, protective, preventive, curative, rehabilitative, and palliative services.

It aims to optimize population health and reduce disparities across the population by ensuring that subgroups have equal access to services.
