Care Reform

The process of transforming the system of care from one orientation to another, in pursuit of an approach to care and protection that better meets the needs of children and their families and is in accordance with their rights. A common goal of systems reforms in many countries is the reorientation of the system from institutions to family-based care. This is called deinstitutionalisation. Resources that relate to deinstitutionalization planning and practice, including the process of transitioning individual services can be found in this section.
