Our Programme Domains

Table of contents


Based on the Swiss Red Cross Strategy 2030, the International Cooperation Department of the SRC supports its Sister National Societies and local partners in three programme domains: Health, Disaster Risk Management and National Society Development.


The SRC engages in seven thematic priorities in health, outlined in the SRC’s health policy for international cooperation. Together with Sister National Societies and local partners, the SRC endeavors to increase people’s access to health, to improve the quality of care, and to assist that people practise a healthy behavior, contributing to an improved health status of the population.

Examples of the impact of the different health interventions in the seven thematic priorities is described below.

Disaster Risk Management

The SRC engages in four thematic priorities in disaster risk management, outlined in the SRC’s Disaster Risk Management Policy for International Cooperation. Together with the Sister National Societies and other local partners, the SRC strives to save peoples’ lives, to assure their means for survival and protect their livelihoods, to reduce exposure and vulnerability of people and communities to hazards and to increase their disaster preparedness.

Below you find examples of the impact of the disaster risk management interventions in the four thematic priorities.

National Society Development

The SRC currently engages in five thematic priorities in National Society Development. The goal is to support Sister National Societies in their effort to achieve and maintain an accountable and sustainable organisation that delivers - through members, volunteers and staff - relevant services to address needs, reduce vulnerabilities and build resilience in a changing environment.

Examples of the impact of our support to Sister National Societies in the five thematic priorities is described below.
