At the International Conference on Health for Development in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Dr Chan talked about the contribution of primary health care to the Millennium Development Goals. "Time and time again we see how, when communities are given opportunities they want and programmes they can own, they are empowered to achieve the lives they desire. Given a hand up, they can indeed lift themselves out of poverty and improve their health."
