The Swiss Health Foreign Policy

International cooperation in health issues is demanded

The Swiss Health Foreign Policyspectra Global health is increasingly becoming an issue of international relations. Diseases do not stop at national borders. Increased need for coordination and greater coherence in the commitment to international health are calling for greater cooperation between the states. Switzerland has already adopted in 2005 with the HFP (Swiss Health Foreign Policy) an instrument to address these complex challenges adequately. Switzerland has taken a pioneering role within the international community. The HFP focuses on cross-border exchange of experience and the dissemination of best-practice models.
