InterAction Switzerland was founding on intersex awareness day 2017
Interaction Switzerland is a Swiss intersex led national organization, advocating for intersex human rights. The organisation, which was founded in 2017, engages in community building, awareness-raising and legislative work. The organization’s aim is to have a legal prohibition of nonconsensual and non-vital treatments on intersex people in Switzerland. Therefore, InterAction Switzerland facilitates different trainings to medical professionals, human rights institutions, schools and other stakeholders meet with parliamentarians and aim to have a vocal community in Switzerland who’s fighting together against medical malpractice. Thanks to Astraeas’ funding and support, InterAction Switzerland has managed to organise events, monthly peer support groups, build alliances, and make intersex rights and lives more visible in Switzerland.
