Anne Lévy: new scenarios for a health ecosystem

Anne Lévy has probably one of the most difficult jobs in Switzerland at the moment. Lévy is Director-General of the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH). At the GDI conference "Rethinking Prevention: Stable Routines in Unstable Times" on 29 April 2021, Anne Lévy will take part in a panel discussion of scenarios for a new health ecosystem.

Anne Lévy took up her post in October 2020, right in the middle of the pandemic. Since then, no two days have been the same, says Lévy: "We adapt every day.

She tries to counteract the high pressure with new hires in the team and a one health approach, i.e. the interaction between humans, animals and the environment.
