Terre des hommes (uk)
Terre des hommes is a member of the health network Medicus Mundi Switzerland and a signatory of the manifesto. In a manifesto launched on January 16th, , a wide coalition has been mobilised so that Switzerland assumes its responsibility towards the global shortage of health personnel. In this manifesto, it shows its commitment that Switzerland should increase training health professionals, guarantee good working conditions and intensify its international engagement to get healthcare for the poorest of the poor. The Swiss health system is confronted by a growing need for qualified personnel to which it is not able to respond alone. Every year there is a shortage of some 5, new health professionals trained in Switzerland. This lack compromises the supply of adequate health care for the population. The situation is not unique to Switzerland: the lack of healthcare personnel is a serious problem world-wide. Because of this, recruiting staff qualified abroad will not be an appropriate solution.
