This chapter focuses on the key questions of who should set priorities, and how. It also examines the complex issues of the underlying factors and attitudes towards priorities. It argues that priority-setting is the most important part of the planning process, and yet it is often not given sufficient attention. It also argues that priority-setting involves a combination of techniques and value judgements.

Keywords:   primary health care, priority-setting, planning, value judgements
