Reducing the Burden of Non-Communicable Diseases in Moldova

01.01.2015 - 30.06.2020

In Moldova, a quarter of the population dies of a Non-Communicable Disease (NCD), such as cardio-vascular disease, before reaching the age of 70. The quality of life of people affected by NCDs is very low, as the health system lacks the capacities to tackle NCDs effectively. The project strengthens primary healthcare service providers’ capacities to better organize care together with social services. Better health will be promoted through engaging communities and local authorities in common actions for NCD prevention and promotion of healthy behaviors.


Swiss Malaria Group

01.07.2014 - 31.12.2019

Founded in 2007 as an informal network, the Swiss Malaria Group (SMG) has undergone organisational development leading to a formalized multi-stakeholder group with a strategic focus on raising awareness about malaria and the comparative advantage of Switzerland to defeat the disease. Organised as an association, with an Executive Secretariat hosted by Medicus Mundi Switzerland, the 13 organisations help accelerating malaria elimination, through innovative control measures, knowledge and financial flows.


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.



Improving Financial Protection and Quality of Care (Contribution to a World Bank Hybrid Trust Fund)

01.09.2013 - 31.08.2020

Kosovo has initiated a wide-ranging health sector reform, a cornerstone of which is the introduction of the mandatory health insurance. Given the complexity of the reforms, technical support will be crucial in assisting an effective implementation. Moreover, a better informed targeting of public subsidies will protect poor people from either foregoing health care or being impoverished due to out of pocket payments for health care in case of ill health.


Health Facilities Autonomy in Kyrgyzstan

01.08.2013 - 31.12.2019

The health reform in Kyrgyzstan has resulted in an increasing access to basic medical services. The management of the health facilities remains however centralized and the inefficient use of limited resources is still an issue. The project intends to improve the efficiency and quality of health care by increasing the autonomy of the health facilities in provision of their services. A Model of Health Facilities Autonomy will be introduced in 3 pilot provinces of the Issyk-Kul oblast and shall be applied in remaining health facilities countrywide. During Phase I, the legal framework to support the introduction of decentralized management in the health system will also be adapted.   


NETCELL – Strengthening malaria control

01.04.2013 - 31.03.2020

The Government of Tanzania together with Partners has developed a comprehensive malaria control system based on two pillars: 1) vector control (largely based on prevention through Insecticide Treated Nets (ITNs) distribution campaigns and vouchers) and 2) case management (proper diagnosis and effective treatment). SDC has supported decisively this effort since 2002 through technical and management support. This will be the last phase of support with strong focus on handing over to the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare.


Reducing Health Risk Factors in Bosnia and Herzegovina

01.12.2012 - 31.03.2020

Chronic diseases are the main cause of death and disability in Bosnia and Herzegovina, entailing substantial costs for the country. Chronic diseases are to a large extent influenced by unhealthy lifestyles, which means that they can be prevented by changing behaviors. The project will facilitate an increased focus of country’s health system on preventive care, reducing behavioural risks factors among the population. In the longer term, strengthened prevention should lead to a reduction in chronic diseases and significant cost savings.


MKAJI – Maji kwa Afya ya Jamii: Upgrading Water Supply in Health Facilities of Dodoma Region

01.09.2012 - 31.12.2019

Water and sanitation (WASH) is one of the most important social determinants of health. Upon request of regional authorities, SDC will upgrade water supply and sanitation systems in 100 primary health facilities in Dodoma region. This intervention will considerably reduce the high risk of infection transmission and improve quality of care in health facilities. Water management and hygiene promotion in and with communities will complement hardware investments.
 


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.
