The transfer of know-how and innovation between hospitals, primary care, research institutes and NGOs is an important pillar of cooperation

ESTHER Switzerland provides institutional health partnerships (IHPs) with technical support mainly through webinars and through our newsletter.

The purpose of the webinars is to raise awareness about how to benefit most from IHPs and to strengthen partnerships that truly reflect our values. Many events are organised with or by other members of the ESTHER Alliance.
