Call to Action – Universal Health Care in Emergencies

FOPS-MMS-Round Table, 13.30 – 16.30 hrs

Call to Action – Universal Health Care in EmergenciesFederal Office of Public Health/ MMS In fragile contexts, armed conflicts and emergencies the access to health services is restricted for the population. In these situations health systems are very much limited and in some cases no longer functional. For avoiding a complete breakdown and strengthening the health system in the medium-term it is key to address the nexus between humanitarian aid and international cooperation. For addressing this issue Switzerland and Afghanistan have launched a Call to Action on Universal Health Care in Emergencies. The Round Table organised jointly by the Federal Office of Public Health and the Network Medicus Mundi Switzerland will foster the dialogue between Swiss organisations working in the field of international health cooperation and those parts of the administration dealing with global health issues, humanitarian aid and international cooperation.
