How is Health2030 being implemented?

The Health2030 Strategy is our health policy compass. To implement it, we are pursuing a wide variety of activities. A number of examples are presented here.

Our public health activities

Together with the other federal authorities concerned, we are seeking to promote sustainable development of the health system in all the priority areas of Health2030. Here, by way of example, we present a number of activities designed to address the following four challenges:

  • Technological and digital change
  • Demographic and social trends
  • High-quality and financially sustainable healthcare
  • Opportunities for a healthy life

The following list of examples is not exhaustive and will be continually developed.

Please note that most examples are presented only in the national languages Italian, French, German.
