GENERAL PRACTICE AND PRIMARY CARE DIVISION
As the main aim of the IAHCP is to promote excellence in patient care in the community, it works with many groups, including governmental and non-governmental bodies in achieving this aim. In doing so it became apparent since 1957 that there is a great need to promote general practice/family medicine, and primary care in various communities worldwide.
Due to many reforms and changes in medical practice and education of healthcare professionals globally as result of advances in medical practice, and the use of new technology, the role of doctors, especially primary care clinicians have been changing to reflect these advances, and demands, and expectations of patients and society. To this end, primary care professionals and settings are now called upon to undertake patient care, research and education. This leads to the Association getting enquires over the past 50 years to support and sponsor many primary care projects.
In response to the above demands, the IAHCP Trustees, Council and Committees have approved primary care based projects since 1959 to date in all parts of the World. As these projects are expanding, there was also need to establish a Primary Care Journal to publish the results of these activities and to open the publication to global primary care professionals and organisations. Hence the Primary Health Care Journals were approved in 1992, and they have been published since 2006 to date. The Journal Website is www.phcj.org.uk . As the Journal expands, there was a need to publish an additional International Journal of Primary Care (IJPHC). The journal’s website is www.ijphc.org.uk , with Professor (Dr) Daniella E.C.C. O. H. as the Editor-in-Chief. The Journals are very successful and are now distributed in over 280 countries and territories internationally.
Primary Care Groups were also established, and Championed by Dr Udo Schirmer, the 13th President of the IAHCP. The groups published a Hand Book of Primary Care in 2011.
The work and membership of the primary care teams continue to expand, and covers the following areas:
