Cooperation with Eastern Europe: Priorities
The programme focuses on two areas:
- Healthcare: Switzerland supports reform of the health system to ensure that young mothers and children have access to adequate health care (perinatal care, pediatric care, sexual and reproductive health for young people). Switzerland also encourages reform of mental health treatment, moving towards a model of care in the community.
- Water: Switzerland is installing drinking water systems and sewage systems in rural areas, thus improving the quality of drinking water, sanitary installations in schools and sewage systems for social institutions.
The two programme priorities are closely linked to one another. Clean drinking water makes an essential contribution to better health in the rural population. In all projects and programmes, however, particular attention is directed at the cross-cutting themes of gender equality and good governance. Finally, by means of its projects, Switzerland fosters exchange with Moldova’s neighbours, thereby strengthening technical know-how and specialized knowledge in the region.
The SDC cooperates with multilateral and bilateral players, with international and local civil society as well as with other private and public institutions, including the World Bank, UNICEF, the Austrian Development Agency (ADA), the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA), Terre des Hommes Lausanne, Caritas Switzerland, the Swiss Pestalozzi Children’s Foundation, HEKS, SOMATO, Health for Youth, the Swiss Tropical and Public-Health Institute, and the Centre for Health Policies and Services.
After achieving impressive results in its nine years of work in Moldova, the SDC's Humanitarian Aid programme there was discontinued at the end of 2008. Its achievements included renovating nursing homes and psychiatric clinics, as well as providing emergency aid and supplying powdered milk to social institutions. Humanitarian Aid also laid the foundation for the SDC water-supply programme in rural areas of the Republic of Moldova which will in future be continued by Bilateral Cooperation. The high esteem which Switzerland’s past achievements have secured it in Moldova will stand its continuing activities there in good stead
