This chapter provides a brief overview of the concept of Primary Health Care and how the Primary Health Care approach has been implemented in different international contexts. In this process, the key successes and failures of its implementation over the past 30 years, and specifically the emergence of large global health initiatives and their influence on Primary Health Care will be reflected upon. Finally, the current interest in revitalising Primary Health Care and what implications this has for South Africa will be considered.
