La salute - Fattore essenziale dello sviluppo

L'azione della DSC nel campo della salute

© dsc

L’azione della DSC nel campo della salute mette in primo piano tre aspetti: il rafforzamento dei sistemi sanitari, la lotta contro le malattie trasmissibili e non trasmissibili e il miglioramento della salute sessuale, riproduttiva, materna, neonatale e infantile. La DSC interviene in Paesi a reddito basso e medio, in contesti stabili o fragili, e in economie in transizione.

Rafforzamento dei sistemi sanitari

Le grandi sfide sono soprattutto la mancanza di personale sanitario, di finanziamenti, di buongoverno e capacità di gestione, la scarsa disponibilità e qualità di infrastruttura, tecnologia e prodotti medici adeguati.

Salute sessuale e riproduttiva

Migliorare la salute delle madri, dei neonati e dei bambini e promuovere una vita sessuale e riproduttiva soddisfacente e senza rischi.

Malattie non trasmissibili e trasmissibili

Mettere in atto strategie per la promozione di uno stile di vita sano, la prevenzione, la diagnosi e il trattamento delle malattie non trasmissibili; sostenere la prevenzione, il trattamento e la ricerca di nuovi farmaci e strumenti diagnostici contro le malattie tropicali trascurate, la malaria, la tubercolosi, l’AIDS, la diarrea e i disturbi respiratori acuti.

GAIN Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition – “Making markets work to improve the consumption of nutritious and healthy food”

01.12.2018 - 31.12.2021

Poor diets - too little food, too much food, or the wrong combinations of foods - are the number-one risk factor for ill health. What people eat depends on what is available on the market as well as accessible, affordable and desirable to consume. SDC supports the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition, a Swiss-based foundation, in facilitating the voluntary engagement of businesses in low and middle income countries to improve the consumption of nutritious and healthy foods, particularly among the vulnerable and poor.


Innovations for efficient quality health systems

01.12.2018 - 31.12.2026

Despite enormous progress in access to healthcare in low and middle-income countries, nearly 9 million people still die every year in these countries because of poor quality of care. SDC supports the establishment of a global design lab for the development of innovative tools to enhance quality measurements that form the base for cost-effective investments into quality improvements. The lab will benefit from Swiss research knowhow.


Strengthen accountability for women’s, children’s and adolescents’ health

01.12.2018 - 31.12.2020

The Partnership for Maternal, Newborn & Child Health (PMNCH) ensures that efforts of the many stakeholders involved in maternal, newborn, child health as well as sexual and reproductive health and rights, are well coordinated at global and national level. SDC supports PMNCH’s accountability work so as to contribute to more effective and efficient use of resources in this priority public health area, including of the funding provided by Switzerland.


Women Deliver Conference and Advocacy

15.11.2018 - 14.11.2020

Women Deliver advocates for gender equality as well as sexual and reproductive health and rights, including through the Women Deliver Conference. Investment cases and concrete solutions developed by Women Deliver and partners are used by a diversity of global actors such as the UN, governments including Switzerland, civil society and private sector. Their evidence-based advocacy contributes to the global movement for gender equality.


Youth Friendly Health Services in Moldova

01.11.2018 - 31.10.2020

Switzerland has supported Moldova in developing its youth friendly health services (YFHSs) and scaling them up to cover the entire country. The improved access to quality healthcare led to better health outcomes in adolescents, such as decreased alcohol use and incidence of sexually transmitted infections. The two-year exit phase of this project will focus on ensuring the sustainability of YFHSs and transferring the responsibility for matching the supply and demand for such services to relevant national and local institutions.


« Appui aux districts sanitaires au Tchad »

01.11.2018 - 31.12.2022

La gouvernance insuffisante du système de santé du Tchad est une des causes des indicateurs de santé très bas ; elle freine le développement tout en constituant un risque mondial pour le contrôle des pandémies. L’appui suisse touchera 1.5 million de personnes des régions du Batha et du Moyen Chari: celles-ci obtiendront des services sanitaires de meilleure qualité et plus accessibles grâce à un système national multi-acteur performant.


Contribution to the International AIDS Society Educational Fund Programme

01.11.2018 - 31.08.2020

Significant yet insufficient progress has been made in the HIV/AIDS response. The body of evidence is large and tools are available but they are not fast enough disseminated, contextualized and included into national policies and programmes. The Educational Fund addresses this by offering countries different tailor-made modules. Through Swiss support, the programme will increasingly embed HIV/AIDS into a broader health response.


Start-ups and social enterprises for global health

01.11.2018 - 31.12.2022

Reaching the ambitious Sustainable Development Goals, including health in low and middle-income countries, requires not only additional financing but also innovative and scalable low-cost solutions that are adaptable to different contexts. The initiative strives to tap the potential of start-up companies in these countries to improve health. The Swiss Impact Hubs in Geneva and Basel aim to support and connect start-ups with potential for scale with major healthcare industry and financial investors.


Air Pollution Impact on Health

01.10.2018 - 31.12.2022

This project aims at reducing the risks of air pollution to maternal and child health in urban Mongolia targeting the most polluted areas of Ulaanbaatar and one province centre. This sector governance project establishes evidence linking air pollution and its health impact, pilots and improves risk reduction measures for children and pregnant women, and both will inform policy making. Swiss know-how will be applied, i.e. through involvement of the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute.


Advancing Access to Better Diagnostics for Febrile Childhood Illnesses

01.08.2018 - 31.12.2020

Despite enormous progress in reducing child death in low and middle-income countries, still too many children die due to wrong diagnosis and treatment. A high proportion receives antibiotics although they do not suffer from bacterial infections. The proposed initiative strives to accelerate the uptake of innovative, affordable and easy-to-use diagnostics that help health workers differentiate between different causes of fever and give appropriate treatment. This will contribute to reduced use of antibiotics, better health and less antimicrobial resistance.


Innovative Vector Control Consortium (IVCC)

01.08.2018 - 31.07.2020

Vector-borne diseases are a major cause of mortality and morbidity, and hamper economic progress of the poorest. Vector control (VC) is a highly cost-effective measure to address neglected tropical diseases and malaria, but research and development for better VC products remains insufficient. Innovative Vector Control Consortium is the only product development partnership for VC and has a unique position to address this market failure.


Support to the reform of mental health services in Moldova

01.08.2018 - 31.07.2022

In 2013 Switzerland started supporting Republic of Moldova in a systemic reform of the mental health (MH), aimed at bringing MH services closer to users by providing treatment in a community setting. The project second phase will contribute to further increase the access to and utilization of quality community-based mental health services and health education programs by the means of a nationwide scaling-up.
