GHC position paper: removing user fees for primary health care services during humanitarian crises

This position paper provides guidance for the removal of user fees for the provision of primary health care services during humanitarian crises.

The paper is based on the humanitarian principles which state that humanitarian interventions should be provided 'based on needs alone', should be accessible without discrimination and should be affordable to all. Therefore, access to primary health care needs to be provided to the most vulnerable and excluded groups.

Global Health Cluster partners have jointly prepared this position paper.
