Poland has an efficient system of family medicine, according to a survey by the Netherlands Institute for Health Services Research conducted in 31 countries.

The findings were presented Sept. 8-11 in Warsaw during the WONCA Europe 2011 European conference of family physicians. The leading theme of the conference was “Family Medicine—Practice, Science and Art.”

The Netherlands Institute highlights the key role that role primary health care plays in ensuring better health. A comparison with other European countries shows that in the past two decades Poland has made major progress in this department. Officials from the World Organization of Family Doctors (WONCA) said that talks before and during the conference clearly showed that Polish physicians were committed to building professional primary care in Poland. The WONCA Europe Council, which convened in Warsaw, unveiled new guidelines in lifestyle disease prevention, which strengthen the role of family physicians. The guidelines will be presented at the next session of the United Nations.

The European conference of family doctors in Warsaw was attended by over 3,000 participants and encompassed over 150 plenary sessions, workshops and discussions.

WONCA, founded in 1972, is an affiliate organization of the World Health Organization (WHO).
