Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, Switzerland has been confronted with numerous challenges in healthcare as well as all other areas of society and the economy. Numerous civic initiatives have emerged in response and they are contributing in a major way to the resolution of the current crisis.

The COVID-19 Civil Society Point of Contact serves as a connection between the Federal Administration and initiatives of Swiss civil society. It bundles specific needs and requests from civil society to the Federal Council Coronavirus Crisis Unit (KSBC). It also provides a platform for a targeted exchange between the Crisis Unit and initiatives from Swiss civil society.
