The current COVID-19 pandemic has rapidly impacted every area of our lives and, in particular, is creating an unprecedented challenge to our health and care systems worldwide.
Health and care systems across the globe are taking numerous measures to respond to the urgent care needs of those impacted by COVID-19, while at the same time trying to reduce the long-term impact on vulnerable people as much as possible.
The International Foundation for Integrated Care (IFIC) recognizes the extraordinary pressures that this crisis has imposed on health and care decision-makers, but particularly on system managers and frontline staff.
IFIC is well aware that COVID-19 impacts are highly localized and reflect both the health and care systems and population demographics in each region and country.
Since the first COVID-19 cases appeared, countries have developed different strategies and responses to cope with the pandemic. At the same time, we have witnessed a wide range of innovations and willingness to adapt to these challenging times.
IFIC would like to facilitate our members to share some of these inspiring stories and experiences through a series of special webinars aimed at supporting those working in the health and care sectors.
