Landlord refuses to fix mold problem in apartment

We live in a 4 bedroom apartment in Geneva. Two bedrooms have mold in the corners. I informed the owner, who is very lazy and just had someone paint over the mold. I wrote the owner a polite letter asking him to please inform us what he would do to fix the issue. I was shocked to receive a very arrogant letter informing me that he did not like the tone of my letter and that he would accept that we leave the apartment. In other words, like it or lump it. I have a family, and the rental situation in Geneva in a disaster. We do not want to move. We just want him to fix the mold problem as this could be very unhealthy for my children. What are my rights ?
