We believe that quality health means shared decision-making that focuses on the needs of the individual throughout their lives. This means that health includes the long-term services and care needs of individuals. Moreover, our efforts reflect that mental health and physical health are central to well-being. We particularly focus on:

  1. Decision-making that takes into account science, culture, and community.

  2. Health care providers being able to tailor care to the individual.

  3. Individuals having the tools and resources to manage their health.

  4. National efforts that are connected to global and international efforts.

  5. Capacities and competencies to respond to health emergencies.

  6. Services that integrate physical and mental health.

We collaborate with our members, a broad range of partners, and many others to do our work.
