 en Schistosomiasis Control in a Primary Health Care System
Taha Abdel Gawad El-Khoby

Abstract

The successful implementation of a Primary Health Care
System (PHC) in any country depends primarily on the ability to adapt 
its concepts and principles to the country's culture and development 
stage.  Thus, the PHC system should reflect a balanced interaction 
between available resources, such as health manpower capabilities, and 
the nature and magnitude of the health problems.  In addition, PHC should
be viewed as the inlet to a multi-level pyramidal health system which
caters to both community and individual needs in a balanced way.  The 
adage that Ministries of Health should "work with and for the people"
in health development, is especially true in the area of PHC, and
hence, the health policy should aim to integrate health services in 
community development and involve people in its planning, implementation 
and evaluation.
