According to the World Health Organization, primary healthcare (PHC) can meet 90% of a person’s health needs throughout their lifetime. In recent decades, PHC has been neglected in many countries in favor of a disease-specific approach. However, all research that has been carried out in primary healthcare has shown that healthcare systems with a PHC structure result in improved patient clinical outcomes, increased healthcare efficiency, better quality of care, reduced healthcare inequities and enhanced patient satisfaction. In 2018, world leaders committed to advancing PHC. We know very well that this will only be possible thanks to innovation and research in PHC. For these various reasons, this Special Issue welcomes original research articles presenting quantitative and/or qualitative data that highlight core values of primary healthcare: health-promoting, disease-preventing, community-oriented, patient-centered and continuous healthcare.Dr. Belchin Kostov
