Quality primary health care is the core and most essential requirement for human beings. Its provision should be dispensed with utmost sensitivity to prevent loss of life and decrease in human capital. Governments, Health Agencies and Non-Governmental Organizations have the moral duty and responsibility to ensure that constituents have access to quality, affordable and all-inclusive health care.
However, the Sub Saharan Africa has had numerous problems that have maimed and compromised the quality of health care service delivery process, availability, accessibility and affordability. Some of the issues affecting healthcare in the Sub-Saharan Africa includes lack of infrastructures, poor management of healthcare facilities, lack of essential equipment, shortages of drugs, affordability, accessibility and unqualified staffs.

- Promote inter-sectorial collaboration and public-private partnership to address broad determinants of health;
- Improve health workforce production and retention;
- Set up mechanisms for increasing availability and accessibility of essential medicines, health technologies and infrastructure;
- Strengthen health information systems;
- Develop and implement strategic health financing policies and plans;
