The Health2020 report was approved by the Federal Council in 2013. The report is based on evidence about current and future challenges in the healthcare sector. At the same time the Health2020 report had to respect that implementation is only possible with the support of the major health-policy stakeholders in a direct democratic system. The lecture will discuss challenges and experiences of the Federal Office of Public Health in integrating scientific knowledge in policy making.
