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

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.

The Zimbabwe Reconstruction Fund is a multi-donor trust fund that supports the Government of Zimbabwe in its reconstruction and development efforts in particular by strengthening the Zimbabwean public finance management and accountability system for improved service delivery, including in the health sector. The fund, with its management mechanism, is currently a key instrument of dialogue and experience sharing between the donors and the Government of Zimbabwe.


Performance-based Health Basket Fund

With its contribution to the health basket fund Switzerland supports the Government of Tanzania, in particular local governments, to accelerate equitable access to health services by women, children and isolated rural populations. Switzerland, as chair of the health development partners group, will lever the Fund resources through policy dialogue to create an innovative financing modality to ensure the utilization of all Tanzanians of quality health services.


Swiss Programme for Research on Global Issues for Development (Theme 5: Public Health)

01.06.2014 - 31.12.2023

Weak health systems have a number of commonalities: Insufficient and erratic funding, inefficient management, poor governance and lack of social accountability. How can health systems be strengthened and sustainable financing mechanisms be created for the benefits of poor people in developing countries? The thematic module public health of the SDC’s and SNSF’s joint r4d Programme (Swiss Programme for Research on Global Issues for Development) will promote research on the service provision systems and financing mechanisms in the public health sector.


Support to St. Francis Hospital in Ifakara

01.10.2010 - 31.12.2021

SDC plans to support health services and management improvement, and address the role of the hospital as a place for practical training and clinical research. The project would focus primarily on improving health care and look for synergies between St. Francis Hospital, the Ifakara Health Institute and the Tanzanian Training Centre for International Health, and the Swiss institutions that support them (SDC, Novartis Foundation, SwissTPH and Solidarmed). During the entry proposal period, SDC and partners will have an opportunity to explore which organisational option would best serve these objectives. Refurbishment of the pediatric ward will also be undertaken and equipment provided.
