The study of primary health care is an opportunity to study the various aspects of the individual and community health welfare, the evolving health care needs of the community, and the contemporary and future trends in health care delivery. Understanding the principles and practice of primary health care will lay the foundation stone for understanding the role of the physiotherapist in planning and providing primary health care within a community context.
