The SPHN project organization involves partners at the national level, at the technical level, and at the institutional level. The Swiss Academy of Medical Sciences (SAMS) is the overarching body of the project.

SPHN is composed of the National Steering Board (NSB), the Executive Board (EB), the ELSI Advisory Group (ELSIag), and the International Advisory Board (IAB). The Data Expert Group (DEG), which is part of the Data Coordination Center (DCC) located at the SIB Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics, provides technical expertise to the initiative.

Finally, the Management Office (MO) is operated by SAMS and coordinates all activities.
