The National Steering Board (NSB)

The National Steering Board (NSB) is the highest governing body of SPHN and is responsible for the overall strategy, for maintaining regular contacts to the superordinate political authorities and for external communications in coordination with the Swiss Academy of Medical Sciences (SAMS).

The NSB includes representatives from key institutions in Switzerland (e.g. University Hospitals, Universities, ETH Domain, swissuniversities, Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH), Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF), patient organizations). The integration of representatives from additional institutions (e.g. private hospitals, health insurances, industry) is foreseen in the future. The members of the NSB are appointed by SAMS.

The Committee of the NSB (Ausschuss) has the duty to prepare the meetings of the NSB and meets regularly to advance activities, process information, and enable more effective management of the SPHN as a whole.
