Global Consultation on Integrated Care for Older People (ICOPE) – the path to universal health coverage
Berlin, Germany, 23-25 October 2017
The Global Consultation on Integrated Care for Older People (ICOPE) was generously hosted by the Federal Ministry of Health, Germany, and the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare, Japan.
The WHO Global strategy and action plan on ageing and health calls for action on aligning health systems to the needs of older populations. The Programme on Integrated Care for Older People (ICOPE) provides direction on how to initiate such system changes. The Global Consultation meeting provided an opportunity for discussion and debate among global experts and WHO Member States about how health and social care systems can implement integrated care for older people.
The meeting was held at the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), Reichpietschufer 20, 10785 Berlin, Germany.
