Switzerland presents several strengths as well as several areas for improvement in the Severe Asthma Index. While Switzerland reports a very low level of unmet healthcare needs and encouraging figures related to asthma risk factors such as obesity, it currently has no comprehensive strategy for asthma and a comparatively low level of tobacco control. Access to treatment and drugs is generally strong, but access to biologics could be improved.
