This report describes the current state of the delivery of health and social long-term care services in Portugal. The country has advanced the policy framework to achieve integrated services delivery. However, fragmentation in the governance, funding and delivery renders the long-term care system inequitable and inefficient. The main policy pointers to further advance integration include consolidating pathways and care transitions, promoting joint training and multi-profile teams and addressing the shortage of human resources, migration and working conditions.
