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.
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
Accessible Quality Health in Kosovo
Despite its young population, the management and treatment of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) figure high on the agenda of the Kosovo Government. Swiss TPH supports the Ministry of Health to improve the quality of primary health care services on NCDs involving communities as well as local authorities. The project is funded by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC).
