Kampala Commitment 2019:

The commitment by family doctors to universal health coverage, primary health care and building the capacity of primary health care teams at scale in Africa

We, the 181 delegates from 32 countries gathered in Kampala (4th to 8th of June 2019) at the WONCA Africa Regional Conference on Family Medicine (including Primafamed Pre-Conference Meeting) and actively developing the discipline of family medicine (the medical ‘specialty’ of primary care) in Africa state the following:










We urge the United Nations General Assembly high-level meeting on UHC in September 2019 in New York to make practical commitments to invest in PHC as a priority, especially on service delivery reforms that includes the family doctor in the PHC team in Africa. Our desire is person- and people-centred primary health care.
