The integration of social services into Primary Health Care necessitated the inclusion of social work professionals on the interdisciplinary team and in the delivery of social-health services. HAP supported the designing of the social worker profile in primary health care in response to the request of the Ministry of Health and Social Protection.

The document was discussed in the consultation meeting attended by representatives from the Ministry of Health and Social Protection, Operator of Healthcare Services, Health Insurance Fund, Faculty of Social Sciences, Order of Social Workers, Red Cross, Tirana Municipality and Community Mental Health Centers in Tirana. The final document reflecting the participants’ proposals will be submitted to the working group at the MoHSP for approval.
