Dr. Hernan Montenegro, Koordinator für Dienstleistungsorganisation und klinische Interventionen bei der WHO, sagte: “The World Health Organization is extremely proud to have partnered with the International Foundation for Integrated Care to further advance the implementation of the WHO Framework on integrated people-centred health services. Health services from around the world are at a breaking point and doing business as usual is no longer an option. The Framework calls for a fundamental shift in the way health services are funded, managed and delivered to ensure equitable access to quality health services centred on the comprehensive needs of people and communities and provided in an integrated fashion. It also calls for engaging and empowering people and communities at large to have a more active role in their own health.”

Dr. Nick Goodwin, CEO von IFIC, betonte: “The adoption by the WHO’s General Assembly in May 2016 of the Global Framework on Integrated People-Centred Health Services was a landmark moment for the integrated care movement. It provided a compelling vision for a future in which putting people more in control of their health, supported by better care co-ordination around their holistic needs, is necessary for enabling safe and sustainable services across all care systems, whether high or low income, mature or fragile. Through our signed memorandum of understanding, the International Foundation for Integrated Care looks forward to continuing its efforts in supporting the WHO in advocating for, and supporting the adoption of, the Global Framework.”
