Special news: Danger to healthcare
The current reform of the Ordinance on Health Insurance (KVV) will not improve equal access to vital medicines for children with cancer, but will in some cases make it noticeably worse. This is why Childhood Cancer Switzerland is rejecting the draft ordinance, but is offering active support in the development of viable solutions. More on this subject in our comment (in German) here.
