Malgrado i costanti progressi nel controllo della diffusione della malattia, la malaria rimane un problema grave in molti Paesi, in particolar modo nell'Africa subsahariana. La DSC affronta le conseguenze sanitarie ed economiche della malaria nei Paesi partner con misure preventive e promuovendo l’accesso ai farmaci.

Nella linea di mira della DSC

La Svizzera è riconosciuta a livello internazionale per la qualità della ricerca sulla malaria e per l'attuazione di iniziative pionieristiche negli ambiti della prevenzione e del controllo della malattia. La DSC ha dunque il vantaggio di collaborare con numerosi e rinomati partner pubblici e privati noti per le loro conoscenze e le loro esperienze nel campo della malaria.

La DSC contribuisce alla lotta alla malaria attraverso la cooperazione bilaterale e multilaterale. Nei Paesi partner in cui la malaria è fortemente endemica, sostiene progetti specifici che includono la distribuzione su larga scala di zanzariere, il rafforzamento dei sistemi sanitari e l'aiuto a iniziative comunitarie locali. Sul piano internazionale, offre contributi finanziari a enti globali come il Fondo Globale per la lotta contro AIDS, tubercolosi e malaria (Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria), a istituzioni accademiche riconosciute e a partenariati pubblico-privato che favoriscono la ricerca e lo sviluppo innovativi a livello di prevenzione, di medicinali e di strumenti diagnostici.

Presa di coscienza e sensibilizzazione

La DSC è inoltre a capo dello Swiss Malaria Group fondato nel 2007, che riunisce undici membri dei settori pubblico e privato e della società civile. L’obiettivo del gruppo è sensibilizzare i decisori e l’opinione pubblica sul tema della malaria e le sue conseguenze, e di incrementare il sostegno svizzero alle organizzazioni attive nella lotta alla malattia. Le sinergie tra i membri contribuiscono alla diminuzione dei casi di malaria nei Paesi più colpiti adottando misure di controllo innovative, trasmettendo sapere e garantendo i flussi finanziari.

Contesto

In molti Paesi, sforzi ingenti hanno permesso di tenere sotto controllo la malaria, il che ha portato alla riduzione della mortalità infantile e dei casi di infezione. Il raggiungimento di questi risultati è stato possibile grazie al miglior coordinamento dei diversi attori internazionali, a investimenti massicci e alla disponibilità di mezzi di prevenzione, di diagnosi e di cura efficaci. Tuttavia, la durevolezza di tali successi è minacciata dalla crescente resistenza dei parassiti ai farmaci e agli insetticidi.

15.11.2019 - 31.10.2023

L’éducation au Bénin souffre d’un manque de qualité : enseignants en nombre insuffisant et pas bien formés, matériel scolaire et encadrement pédagogique insuffisants. La Suisse s’est fortement engagée pour la formulation du nouveau Plan sectoriel de l’éducation 2018-2030. Forte de son expertise en matière d’éducation et sur la base des résultats clés obtenus à travers les autres programmes du portefeuille éducation, sa contribution au PAQUE vise à améliorer la qualité de l’éducation au. Bénin

15.11.2019 - 31.12.2023

Many countries struggling with extreme poverty have expending economies, creating new opportunities for innovative approaches to address societal and environmental challenges. SDC supports the new initiatives of the Swiss Federal Institutes of Technology (ETH4D, ETH Zurich and Tech4Impact, EPFL), which encourage Swiss researchers to work together with research and implementing partners from the global South in developing research-based solutions to global challenges.


Dynamic electronic decision trees for managing childhood illness (DYNAMIC)

15.11.2019 - 31.12.2022

Every year, more than five million children die before the age of five due to preventable or treatable causes, most of them in developing countries. New technologies combined with rapid tests can improve diagnosis and management of sick children and reduce health costs. This collaborative research project makes use of Switzerland’s knowledge in digital technologies to improve the health of children and reduce unnecessary antibiotic prescriptions in low resource settings.

Engaged People - Strong municipalities

01.11.2019 - 31.12.2030

Molodova has the most fragmented sytem of local governments in the South-East Europe. People's dissatisfaction with quality of services is high and participatory decision-making is not common. Local governance reforms launched by the Government are being pursued in a centralized manner.
