The primary achievement of the Short-Term Scientific Mission (STSM) is the comprehensive report, attached herewith: The module on policy, funding and business models for the future of NET4Age-Friendly work and SHAFE implementation.

In this report, we have harnessed the combined expertise of previous research from the NET4Age-Frienly network, SHAFE, stakeholders, and policymakers to provide evidence-based recommendations. These recommendations are designed to empower policymakers and governmental advisors to create sustainable and integrated health and social care pathways. 

Some of the findings of the report are summarized below. Continue reading the report and the information given for the extended version.

European health and social care systems are founded on principles of accessibility and equity, aiming to provide universal coverage and comprehensive care. While they have achieved remarkable progress, challenges such as aging population and rising health and care costs require ongoing policy adjustments and innovations to meet the evolving needs of European citizens. Policymakers must remain committed to upholding these principles and developing sustainable solutions for the future. The information in this document will contribute to a better informed and better future solution for the policymakers. 

By prioritizing person-centered care, embracing technological innovation, and ensuring the well-being of the population, these recommendations form a blueprint for the future of health and social care services.
