Primary health care (PHC) has come a long way since Armenia gained independence in 1991. The former Soviet health service had to face the problems of transition to a market economy. A reform programme was launched in 1997 to move from the polyclinic system to family medicine (FM) with the programme aiming to create a strong and skilled PHC sector and a Basic Benefits Package for all citizens.
