Now more than ever, healthcare systems and communities must work together to improve outcomes for patients, caregivers and populations. Shared governance is an essential piece of the journey towards an integrated, people-centred health system; one that must be co-designed in partnership to breakdown barriers in care.
Join this session to learn from the first-hand experiences from a patient partner, a senior health care leader, a Canadian policy maker and an international expert, as they discuss:
• Examples of how shared governance models have been co-designed to enable collaborative, people-centred health systems across the continuum of care; and
• Key practices and implementation ...
As each integrated care building block is reliant on information, digital solutions could be seen as the cement that holds the blocks together. Albeit, the arguments for greater use and investment have become increasingly compelling, the rate of adoption remains below expectations; that is until COVID-19.
Since the outbreak of COVID-19, countries have seen a rapid citizen-led proliferation of digital solutions being used for remote working, socialisation between family, friends and communities, and education, to name but a few. This rapid pace of change has been mirrored by national and local government and public health through the use of social ...

UHC2030 will launch a discussion paper to consolidate our vision for resilient health systems, and priority actions for both emergency preparedness and UHC goals. With this, we aim to bring partners together around common messages on public health actions as ‘step zero’ of UHC, so health systems better support health security and UHC. This builds on the recent statement from UHC2030 co-chairs which called on world leaders to remember their UHC commitments as they respond to COVID-19.
Ilona Kickbusch, Chair of the International Advisory Board of the Global Health Centre, will moderate a panel discussion with senior leaders from WHO ...Read more
High performing health and social care systems provide exceptional care, quality and experiences for patients, caregivers and providers. Pivotal to this, is how we work across health and social care as one team. The need for integrated care is a global priority and is poised to address fragmentation and accelerate the improvements that are needed. During a global pandemic, the need to work as an integrated system is even more pressing and gives us an opportunity to pause, reflect and respond.
In situations where systems are subjected to unprecedented pressure, organizations and sectors may respond from the lens of what ...

The COVID-19 pandemic is intensifying inequalities and producing new threats for older persons and persons with disabilities. COVID-19 case fatality rates suggest a notable increase in risk after age 60, with progressively worse outcomes for those over 70 and over 80 years. Likewise, people with disabilities are among the hardest hit.
To raise awareness and ensure that the UN regional system is equipped to help governments guarantee the equal rights of older people and people with disabilities to access healthcare and lifesaving procedures during the pandemic, UNFPA, WHO and UNDCO, in coordination with the United Nations European Regional Issue Based ...Read more
