WHO is hosting a webinar to launch its framework for countries to achieve an integrated continuum of long-term care. The objectives of the framework are to: promote a global common understanding of long-term care; facilitate assessment of existing long-term care systems and services; facilitate the integration of long-term care within existing health and social care systems; offer guidance on the key system elements, defines as: governance; stainable financing; information, monitoring and evaluation systems; workforce; service delivery; and innovation and research.
The event will: provide an overview of the global situation of long-term care for older people; share the key objectives and messages of the framework; hear reflections on challenges and solutions from stakeholders involved in long-term care for older people from Member States, UN partners, academics, and civil society; give an opportunity for engagement and discussion on the key issues for long-term care.
