Urban primary health care in Africa: a comparative analysis of city-wide public sector projects in Lusaka and Dar es Salaam.

Abstract

Since the 1980s, a number of health system interventions in Sub-Saharan Africa have targeted urban areas, reflecting increasing attention to the contextual contrasts between urban and rural health settings. This article compares attempts in two projects—in Zambia and Tanzania—to strengthen urban primary health care in the public sector and make it more inclusive in a dual sense: making quality services more accessible to the poor; and fostering community involvement in health care and health-related activity.
