In August 2005, the Better Care Network (BCN) Secretariat was established to support and implement the BCN’s daily activities. The Secretariat is based in New York and operates under the guidance and direction of the Steering Committee.
The Secretariat is responsible for the core functions of the Network and for implementing BCN's Strategic Plan:
Facilitating information exchange across members and partners;
Managing relationships and convening key partners and stakeholders to promote dialogue and action;
Supporting policy and practice through the provision of technical assistance, resources and access to a global community of care professionals.
