Making health care fit for the future
Since the Robert Bosch Stiftung was founded in 1964, a focus on health has been a key aspect of our work, and one which began with the establishment of the Robert Bosch Hospital, which the man himself inaugurated in 1940. Today our activities in this field center around the ongoing challenge of offering optimal health care – both now and in the future – to the growing number of people with chronic conditions and multiple illnesses, in view of demographic changes and the continual digitization of health care.

In light of this, we promote qualifications for those working in health services and their interprofessional collaboration. We offer ideas for ways to change health care structures and operations and support approaches which enhance the ability of patients to cope with their illness. We focus our attention on the needs of patients with rare chronic illnesses or dementia. We work on numerous projects of various kinds, with different partners and target audiences, and support projects also striving to meet the challenges posed by creating a health care system that is fit for the future.
