The WHO Service Delivery and Safety Department is pleased to announce the launch of the new WHO Framework on integrated people-centred health services (who.int) website.

Why are we excited about this site? 

At the Sixty-ninth World Health Assembly Member States officially adopted the Framework on integrated people-centred health services (IPCHS) and its supporting resolution, formally giving the WHO Secretariat the mandate to work across the organization to support the implementation, national adaptation and operationalization of the Framework. The new website aims to be a steward for the Framework – serving as an important medium for accessing information on the Framework, for sharing technical products and resources, and for communicating key news, events and activities taking place worldwide.

Three sections to visit:

  1. About the Framework – Development of the Framework, alignment with other WHO strategies, benefits of IPCHS
  2. Implementation of the Framework – Strategies, policy options, interventions, and a “Call for Action on IPCHS” (*expected release date: December 2016)
  3. IntegratedCare4People platform – A global network that invites practitioners and organizations to access and share operational and technical insights on how to transform health services to be more integrated and people-centred

We encourage you to link to this website and support our dissemination efforts by sharing important and relevant news on your communications channels.


How is this the WHO IPCHS website different from the IntegratedCare4People platform?

The WHO IPCHS website is the official who.int website for the Framework, while the IntegratedCare4People platform is an online community that invites practitioners and organizations to access and share operational and technical insights on how to transform health services to be more integrated and people-centred.
