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 focus on this topic in 2018.
