Inclusion criteria

All content on the IntegratedCare4People web platform need to meet the following inclusion criteria. All resources, practices and communities need to be:

  • Supporting Universal Health Coverage – Supporting moves towards Universal Health Coverage, defined as ensuring that all people have access to the promotive, preventive, curative and rehabilitative health services that they need, that these are of sufficient quality to be effective, while also ensuring that use of these services does not expose the user to financial hardship.
  • Led by whole-systems thinking – That views the health system as a whole and tries to understand how its component parts interact with each other and how the system might be influenced by factors beyond it. 
  • Ethical – By making sure that care optimizes the risk–benefit ratio in all interventions, respects the individual’s right to make autonomous and informed decisions, safeguards privacy, protects the most vulnerable and ensures the fair distribution of resources. 
  • Participatory – The notion of people-centred and integrated health services puts informed and empowered people at the centre of the health system. Therefore, processes to develop national strategies for such services should ensure accountability to local stakeholders and, especially, to disadvantaged populations.
