Health Policy between the Nanny State and Neoliberalism

-
Erwin-Schrödinger-Saal
Plenary / Debate
english language

The Alpbach Health Symposium starts with a controversial debate: How much state input does the healthcare system require? Does the state have the responsibility to protect its citizens from themselves? What are the limits of personal responsibility in the promotion of healthy living? What preventative political measures can and should we take?
