The authorities in Bosnia and Herzegovina have implemented various healthcare reforms over the past 20 years. The Swiss programme has helped to improve the services available and, at the same time, lower costs. However, inequalities still exist in regard to accessing health services. The 'Strengthening Nursing in Bosnia and Herzegovina' project seeks to provide high-quality health services for all segments of the population needing them, including vulnerable and marginalised people.
The project, supported by the SDC, works along three axes:
regulating and improving the standing of the nursing profession;
improving the training of nurses;
expanding and promoting nursing care at the community level.
