The main aims of Primary Health Care (PHC) are to:

  • Provide the public with holistic quality care, based on a multidisciplinary approach.
  • Provide PHC services for a healthier society through health education, timely prevention and treatment, thus achieving better health for all. 

One of the key objectives that contribute to the aims of the department is planning services around people’s needs and expectations. This includes identifying behavioural patterns or complaints that constitute or indicate a risk to a person’s health.  PHC teams are the first point of contact for people, bringing health care as close as possible to where people live and work.

PHC services are delivered to the public through ten health centres, and a considerable number of community clinics (bereġ) around Malta and Gozo.
