Welcome to the SFCNS Swiss Brain Health Plan 
Kick-off Meeting

It is our great pleasure to cordially invite you to the SFCNS Swiss Brain Health Plan Kick-Off Meeting, which will take place on November 22, 2023 from 13:00-18:00 at the Kunsthaus Zurich. 

This Swiss Brain Health Plan implements the Swiss Brain Health Strategy in accordance with the EAN Brain Health Strategy, launched by the WHO and the European Academy of Neurology EAN in 2022. 

The joint goal is awareness creation about brain health as a whole and to initiate prevention programs. The strategic task force of the Swiss Brain Health Plan consists of the about 50 authors of the publication «The Swiss Brain Health Plan 2023-2033»

The Swiss Brain Health Plan will be developed further by SFCNS as it involves many specialties of the neuro field. The goal of the Kick-Off Meeting is information and awareness creation among all stakeholders i.e. politics, hospitals, patient organizations, researchers, insurances, companies and finally the public.

Why is Brain Health so important?

Good Brain Health is vital to reducing the large and growing healthcare burden associated with brain disorders. This strategy recognises that Brain Health goes beyond the absence of disease or treatment of disorders or rehabilitation and encompasses preventive measures to decrease the incidence of brain disorders, enabling individuals to function and cope with life situations.

Experts of various neurological and psychiatric specialities will demonstrate and explain the importance of good brain health across lifespan.

We hope that our event will be of a great interest to you and look forward to welcome you to this exciting event in Zurich.
