SwissRDL - Medical Registries and Data Linkage

Declaration of interests

Swiss RDL, and all our staff, is committed to remaining independent of financially driven biases. Research is costly, and some research would be impossible without financial support from organizations that have vested interests in the results of projects they fund*. But even when Swiss RDL receives funding from for-profit organizations that have a commercial interest in healthcare, we transparently report all of our funding sources, according to good practice standards.

*Non-financial interests are excluded from this document.
