As in a war when the battle is over, sentries and the guards remain at their posts . They not only would have fought the battles alongside others but they will remain and become part of the reconstruction team. That is how to appreciate the place of primary care providers in a pandemic or any outbreak . That said, primary care providers can only be most effective in a country that has built its systems with the crucial role they play in mind.
"Strong primary care systems are the exception rather than the rule, but they're also a best buy in healthcare. They're crucially important, and they're going to work differently in different countries, in different states, in different communities. We need to do a better job of supporting primary care, building primary care, and paying for primary care."
