The current COVID-19 pandemic is affecting every aspect of society, posing new challenges to citizens and communities across the globe. Stronger and more resilient communities and systems are better able to cope, respond and adapt to these challenges. Integrated Community Care is the systemic approach needed to reinforce community strengths and emphasize prevention. The Transnational Forum on Integrated Community Care seeks to move ICC to the forefront of an international policy and practice agenda.

Strategy paper to move ICC forward
