The Africa Primary Healthcare Development Program (APHDEP) is designed to complement the efforts of African Governments, within the contexts, capacities and priorities of each country to meet six core objectives:
- To create a continental movement, with the 1978 Declaration of Astana as a starting point, for the strengthening of sustainable primary healthcare systems as the basis for Universal Health Coverage, community stability, economic development and national security and attainment of the Sustainable Development Goals.
- To leverage Islamic finance and Technology for the development of Primary healthcare infrastructure and information systems across all relevant sectors in Africa through partnerships, collaboration and coordination of the public sector with civil society, communities, private and faith-based systems.
- To develop and progressively scale up health care systems that are accessible to all in a country by expanding basic health care to every person, including vulnerable populations, through low-cost, high-impact, sustainable approaches that improve outcomes.
- To work with governments to reform their primary healthcare systems, targeting areas where current approaches are failing, moving too slowly, or at a scale that leaves too many dying or suffering needlessly.
- To assess the financing needs of Primary Healthcare infrastructure in Partner countries, and develop management model that identifies problems, a framework for implementation and helps to evaluate dynamically performance of primary healthcare infrastructure service in Africa.
- To enhance education, training opportunities, and dissemination of information aimed at improving the quality and efficacy of primary health care services;
