In Switzerland noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) and addictions are a major challenge for public health. Key figures on these topics are presented on this site. Current data from reliable sources can be consulted interactively.

This site is managed by Obsan, under a mandate and with the support of the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH). The presented indicators are those defined in the framework of the two national strategies 2017-2024 of the Federal Council: “Prevention of Noncommunicable Diseases (NCD-Strategy)” and “Addictions”.

Only headline-indicators are available in English. For all other indicators please visit the corresponding pages in German, French or Italian.

35 of the 135 indicators are currently available online (some of them in German, French and Italian only). Further indicators will be published when the pilot phase ends in the first half of 2019.
