The research conducted by the Primary Health Care team at Ariadne Labs seeks to create a clear language around what primary health care is and develop an appropriate set of measurable outcomes that can be adapted globally. We have done this by leading and collaborating on studies ranging from how to define a common primary health care framework to a case study of Costa Rica’s strong foundation for primary health care service delivery.
