PHC Lead Theme
The Primary Health Care approach has been adopted by the Faculty as a lead theme in its teaching curricula.
The following diagram illustrates where some of the key principles of the PHC Approach are integrated into the MBChB curriculum, viz. health promotion (HP), bio-psychosocial-cultural sensitivity (Culture, Psyche and Illness), evidence-based practice (EBP), and Health and Human Rights.
Work is in progress to develop this lead theme further in the MBChB, and also in the curricula of the Health and Rehabilitation disciplines.
