Program Integration:

 A Process Not an Outcome


Chronic disease program integration is a process that:

  • Brings categorial programs together to work together to improve health outcomes.
  • Facilitates the strategic alignment of resources as a means to maximize mutual benefits and opportunities.
  • Increases the effectiveness and efficiency of individual programs.
  • Protects the integrity of categorical program objectives
