Genolier Foundation Platform


The Genolier Foundation Platform is a program created in 2017 with the aim of networking the material resources and expertise offered by the Swiss Medical Network and making them available to humanitarian or charitable organizations founded or actively supported by Swiss Medical Network-approved physicians.

The Genolier Foundation Platform offers long-term support to these organizations in various forms: the donation of medical and non-medical materials, setting up connections with doctors, nursing staff and employees of the Swiss Medical Network who wish to participate in voluntary missions for these organizations, and/or fund-raising activities and media exposure.

The member organizations of the Genolier Foundation Platform are active at both Swiss and international level.
