The Swiss health system - a workshop for curious and cost-aware citizens


Exploding costs, rising health insurance rates, medical overtreatment, family doctor shortage. Bad news from health care system seem never-ending. In contrast, Switzerland has one of the best health care systems worldwide. High life expectancy and low infant mortality are just the most obvious testimonies of it. Within the last century, medicine has profoundly evolved - from a predominantly observatory to a highly effective, curative discipline. Grace to modern medicine, life expectancy was not only continuously rising, but elderly people can live their lives in mostly good life quality. This success comes at a price. Our evening workshop provides insightes in the most important conrerstonse of our health system. You learn, how modern medicine works. You will also be enabled to appraise critically medical performance. Shortly: you will be empowered to care for your own health.
