Those organizations concern themselves with the different aspects of general practice/primary health care. Within this network EURACT is responsible for the subjects of study and education.
EURACT aims to foster and maintain a high standard in European primary health care by the promotion of study and education in the field of general practice within the countries that are affiliated with WONCA Europe.
