Our initiatives and projects

Improvement in health literacy

MSD has been committed to strengthening health literacy for decades, both locally and globally. In Switzerland, MSD joined forces with the founding partners, amongst others FMH and Health Promotion Switzerland, into 2010 to create the “Allianz Gesundheitskompetenz” (Health Literacy Alliance). The alliance is a networking platform for stakeholders from the areas of health, science and politics, promoting the issue at the strategic level, supporting the implementation of initiatives and awarding a regular prize for innovative implementation projects.
