In this editorial, we argue that people-centred care has often remained too passive, condemns patients and carers to subservient roles, and as a result preserves a power imbalance that favours systems and professionals over people and communities. For integrated care to reach its full potential, we instead advocate for a deliberate shift towards ‘people-driven’ care where people have more agency in participating in their health and greater power in decision-making.
