"A well-written, comprehensive overview of how primary health care developed over time and across countries."

"Achieving Health for All reveals how a focus on primary care can move us beyond just treating disease. David Bishai and Meike Schleiff have brought us closer to a world where disease no longer occurs—one that generates health."

"Health for All can be achieved! When my father, Carl Taylor, in planning the Alma Ata conference, grabbed the 'Health for All' phrase, evidence already showed it was possible. This book is more than the history of primary health care, it tells how to achieve what is primary for us all."

"Achieving Health for All lays out the history and accomplishments of primary health care as well as its points of tension, and opportunities for synergy, with vertical health interventions. Students, experts, and senior policy makers who desire to meet sustainable development goals and advance universal health coverage should read this book."

"With compelling evidence from all continents, David Bishai and Meike Schleiff show that primary health care is about all health and that it will work for any country facing any type of health challenges, not just those associated with poorer economies. Bishai and Schleiff's engaging style and ability to turn data and historic accounts into lively prose makes reading this book a pleasure."
