The main objective of the «National Dementia Strategy 2014-2019» is to support those affected by dementia and promote their quality of life while consistently taking their individual circumstances into account.
The «National Dementia Strategy 2014-2019» defines four areas requiring priority action. They were ascertained on the basis of an expert opinion commissioned by the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) and the Swiss Conference of the Cantonal Ministers of Public Health (CMPH).
Implementation of the «National Dementia Strategy 2014-2019» must take into account the federal division of tasks between the different levels of government - Confederation, cantons and municipalities.
Most projects are initiated, specified and carried out as well as financed and staffed by the stakeholders involved.
