Primary Care (PC) and Primary Health Care (PHC) are often employed interchangeably; however, they differ in practical application, context, and public health setting. There interface between Public Health and Primary Care is also not clearly understood by academicians and professionals. Due to a lack of proper understanding, the concepts are applied sub-optimally.
