The Congress also celebrated the launch of the PACK Collection of articles which are being published in the BMJ Global Health open-access online journal, as well as the launch of the PACK Movement - a social movement of people who all aim to promote access to quality primary healthcare for all, especially for those living in low and middle-income countries and support the development and implementation of PACK to achieve this objective.
