      Abstract

      This article aims to discuss how the mistranslation of “Primary Health Care” takes an adverse effect on the conceptual understanding of primary medical service and the development of medical and health services in mainland China. The mistranslation of “Primary” among the public, leadership, and scholars in the field of medicine can lead to a misunderstanding on the real concept as “entry level.” Therefore, it is of significant importance to dispel the misunderstanding and free our minds so as to vigorously develop the primary health care and general practice system.
