Primary health care facilities usually provide community care (supporting community-based health workers) and home-care programmes for disabled people and people with chronic or terminal illness. Some PHC services may also have a delivery room, a few short stay beds and basic laboratory equipment. The information in this book will also be relevant for secondary level facilities, usually district hospitals, which deal with more complex cases and take referrals from primary level facilities.
