Family Medicine and Integrated Care

Swiss TPH helps governments with the transformation and modernisation of health services towards decentralised, family medicine driven care and community health interventions. Health specialists at Swiss TPH work with public health institutions, service providers, local authorities and communities helping to build capacity and to put mechanisms in place to coordinate providers and share information across service interfaces towards increasing effectiveness, quality and accountability of services. 

Improving the Quality of Care

Swiss TPH's main focus is to improve the quality of care in countries with insufficient health care provision. For instance, experts develop evidence based clinical guidelines and institutional protocols, they train health personnel, develop and implement e-health based solutions and strengthen the capacity of patients and their families towards self-help and self-care.

Health promotion

People’s participation in the development of person centred strategies and the empowering people for self-help and self-care initiatives plays an important role in Swiss TPH interventions. These intervention approaches also promote non-communicable diseases (NCDs) risk reduction through healthy behaviour and healthy environments.

Swiss TPH Focus

Reducing Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) in Moldova

Disease prevalence from the four main NCDs (cardiovascular diseases, cancers, diabetes and chronic respiratory diseases) is very high in Moldova. Through the Healthy Life Project, Swiss TPH supports the Republic of Moldova in improving access to quality health services for NCD patients, with a special focus on the most vulnerable groups, as well as in ensuring public health interventions so that citizens take greater responsibility for their own health. The Healthy Life Project is driven by the knowledge that Integrated Patient-Centred Health Services (IPHCS) holds the key to ensuring social inclusion and that fewer people are left behind. Our experts strengthen the capacity of national institutions to introduce modern health promotion, develop treatment guidelines and facilitate a supportive environment for community care.

Accessible Quality Health in Kosovo

The Accessible Quality Healthcare (AQH) project aims to improve the health of the population of Kosovo by strengthening the capacity of healthcare providers and managers so that they are able to meet the needs of their patients, focusing especially on meeting the needs of vulnerable groups. With focus on the Primary Health Care (PHC) level, the project aims to improve the quality of service provision, reduce access barriers and make services more responsive to patients' needs. At municipality level, service integration is strengthened through improved management, stronger inter-sectoral collaboration and increased effectiveness. Read more about the AQH project

Community Integrated Health and Social Services in Romania

Swiss TPH helps to modernise health systems of Eastern European countries. In Romania for instance, experts supported the government's health sector reform agenda to empower local authorities to develop integrated care solutions at community level by better coordinating health, social and complementary community services. The goal was to provide integrated services to people living in rural communities and remote areas with the focus to improve the access, quality and comprehensiveness of services for people in need.
