Intervention - Code of practice
The Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) is addressing inequities in access to health and health services. SDC’s development cooperation is channelled through a mix of bilateral and multilateral cooperation efforts.
The agency supports its partners to go beyond project-based approaches towards a coordinated programme and sector approach promoting ownership. SDC systematically fosters the participation of its partners in national, regional and international debates and exchanges.
Bilateral and multilateral development cooperation
At international and national level, SDC actively coordinates and promotes synergies with all development actors - from bilateral and multilateral development agencies, the public and the private sector to the civil society.
Bilateral humanitarian Aid
In the context of emergencies and disasters, SDC’s humanitarian aid in the health sector is complementary to its development cooperation.
At the Swiss level, SDC closely coordinates and cooperates with other federal offices and public actors, Swiss NGO’s, academic institutions and centres of competence to strengthen the coherence and impact of Swiss engagement in international health and to further develop its own competence in health and related issues.
