Over the course of 2015, the quint-essenz quality criteria have been extensively reworked to accommodate important new aspects and to refine the existing criteria to take account of experience gained.
In addition to the list of criteria for projects, there is now a comprehensive list of criteria for the assessment and development of programmes. An introductory guide to working with the quality criteria has been issued (only available in german, french and italian).
Health Promotion Switzerland uses an excerpt from the new list of criteria as a reference when assessing project plans for the Cantonal Action Programmes, which are submitted by the cantons in the form of an application for assistance. A separate list of these eight criteria is also available.
New instructions and criteria lists are only available in german, french and italian.
