During the opening ceremony of ICIC16 Dr Margaret Chan set out the vision for strengthening health systems, achieving universal health coverage and making services more people-centred and integrated. At the same time in Genvea, during the Sixty-ninth World Health Assembly, WHO Member States officially discussed the Framework on integrated people-centred health services and its draft resolution. During a high-level side event at the Assembly, on Friday 27 May 2016, WHO and its Collaborating Centre, the Andalusian School for Public Health, officially launched the IntegratedCare4People web platform.
This platform brings together knowledge, information and a global network of people and organizations working towards the goal of integrated people-centred health services for all. Information is organized in a repository of resources, communities of practice and a practices database where technical insights and the operational know-how of health service delivery transformations are shared. The web platform for IntegratedCare4People is a collaborative platform where individuals can share resources, practices and participate in communities of practice.
