The Journal of Primary Health Care (JPHC) publishes peer-reviewed original research and systematic reviews and papers on improving performance that are relevant to its primary health care audience.

The journal is positioned as relevant to countries within the Pacific rim and is a means both of moving research into practice and practice into research. It is published quarterly in March, June, September and December.


The JPHC is widely read by New Zealand general practitioners, practice nurses, community pharmacists and other primary health care practitioners and has an increasing international readership.
