Conference on Equity in Healthcare

This conference will focus on methodological issues related to measuring, documenting and understanding equity in healthcare.

The Swiss Federal Office of Public Health FOPH is committed to promoting equal opportunities in health for everyone living in Switzerland. Ensuring access to high quality and affordable preventive and curative services for all, including the most disadvantaged population groups, is part of the political priorities. While some measures have been put in place to increase equity, there is still a lot of work to do.

To tackle this issue together, the FOPH is organizing a conference on equity in healthcare with the support and participation of the National Research Programme ‘Smarter Health Care’ (NRP 74) and the Swiss School of Public Health (SSPH+). The day will be dedicated to examining research in this area and focus on how research can contribute to increasing equity in healthcare in Switzerland.
