Subministry of Primary Health Care


Explanation:
El término relacionado con una Secretaría (del gobierno de un país), en mi experiencia se traslada a Ministry, dado que en muchos países, incluso de habla hispana, las Secretarías son el equivalente a Ministerios.

Atención Primaria de la Salud, te lo propongo con su traducción literal.

Saludos,
