Improving access to good-quality healthcare services in Kosovo

01.11.2013 - 31.12.2019

The standard of healthcare provision in Kosovo is inadequate and does not meet the needs of the general population. Vulnerable groups are particularly affected, with a number of economic and social barriers limiting their access to care. That is why the SDC is working to improve the quality and inclusivity of the primary healthcare system in Kosovo.

Increasing the Quality of Health Services for All

15.10.2013 - 30.04.2020


Albania has the lowest public health spending in the region. Many patients bypass primary health care and overcrowd hospitals, especially in larger cities. In addition, non-communicable diseases are increasing at an alarming rate. Therefore health promotion, prevention of diseases and improved primary health care services are a top priority for the country.

Children are skipping rope.

01.10.2013 - 31.05.2019

Unhealthy lifestyles and a health system that is often not up to scratch means that a higher than average number of people die from noncommunicable diseases in Ukraine in comparison with other countries. An SDC project run over several years seeks to improve this situation.

The SDC is committed to improving the education and vocational training system in Niger.

Regeneration of neglected villages in south-east Myanmar

01.09.2013 - 14.08.2017

In Myanmar, the villages close to the Thai border have seen more than six decades of conflict. Geographically isolated, and in some cases under the control of armed indigenous ethnic groups, these villages are beyond the reach of central government authority. Their inhabitants must do with infrastructures that are in a perilous state. Working alongside the affected communities and other partners, the SDC is committed to restoring basic services, with the particular involvement of the young people in the region.

With the aim of improving the living conditions of the most vulnerable populations in Somalia, SDC is contributing CHF 6 million to the three-year Resilience Programme of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, which forms part of the FAO’s overall Somalia programme. With innovative monitoring instruments, risk mitigation measures and through close partnerships, the programme paves the way for a transition from humanitarian interventions to sustainable development in large parts of Somalia, including in the south-central region where humanitarian access to the population in need is highly limited.
