About the Swiss LSH Market

The Swiss healthcare system is known to be one of the best in the world. There is an extensive network of hospitals, institutions and healthcare providers. Swiss healthcare expenditure amounts to 11.88% if its GDP, which is the highest of all EU countries and the second highest in the world. The Netherlands and Switzerland have a similar vision for the future of healthcare. Much attention is given towards prevention and improving the health of its citizens. Both countries have a large baby-boomer population, are innovative countries and face similar challenges in terms of health expenditure. This provides a good basis for cooperation between the Dutch and Swiss business communities and institutes.
