Rationale: Primary health care is an approach to health that includes a spectrum of services extending beyond the traditional health-care system. It encompasses all services that influence the determinants of health, such as income, housing, education, and the environment. Embedded within primary health care is primary care, which focuses on healthcare services and is a major component of nursing student studies, including health promotion, illness and injury prevention, and the diagnosis and treatment of illness and injury. The five domains of primary health care articulated in the Declaration of Alma-Ata are accessibility and equitable distribution, community participation, health promotion, appropriate technology, and intersectoral collaboration. Teaching about medications for tuberculosis is the appropriate use of technology. Addressing water issues is intersectoral collaboration. Extending clinic hours supports accessibility and equitable distribution. Use of a free-lunch program supports health promotion.
