On page 200 in the May issue of EVA an interview with Her Excellency Regina Escher, Ambassador of the Swiss Confederation in Bulgaria was published.
Mrs. Escher presented the Swiss model of home care and its implementation in Bulgaria. This model is applied in Bulgaria since 2003 by the Bulgarian Red Cross in cooperation with the Swiss Red Cross. The idea is that not only the elderly, but also the young people with diseases, are entitled to medical care which they receive not in the hospital but in their own home. The social part of the Project is of no less importance as the beneficiaries of the Project receive not only medical care but also attention and human interaction.
