● ensure effective integration and support across the three levels of health services, across the lifespan, with special attention to high-risk and vulnerable groups, through a patient-centered approach;
● provide support for navigation throughout the levels of care and community opportunities;
● harmonize service delivery with societal actions and demands or offers;
