Health Equity

The health of certain sections of the migrant population in Switzerland is at greater risk than that of the local population. The federal administration’s programme on migration and health (2002-2017) was designed to improve the health literacy of the migrant population and help healthcare professionals deal with patients of different origins.  

Description of the Swiss Programme on Migration and Health:

Health equity is of great importance. The National Strategy for the Prevention of Non-communicable Diseases (NCD-Strategy) and the National Strategy on Addiction and Mental Health focused on this topic in 2018.
