Get involved


The WHO Framework on integrated people-centred health services holds great promise. It promotes cross-cutting collaboration and integration across organizations, health settings and providers. It helps national governments and development partners plan and set priorities for the system, and guides provider organizations and system leaders in planning and delivering care. Most importantly, it ensures people are engaged and involved in planning for health services that are aligned with their care needs.

Here are just a few examples of ways you can get involved in the IntegratedCare4People web platform and support the implementation of the WHO Framework.
