"Post-COVID-19 Care: Medical Humanities and Health Economies at the Frontlines"

Univ.-Prof. Dr. Monika Pietrzak-Franger (PI) (University of Vienna), Assoc. Prof. Dr. Susanne Mayer (PI) and Dr. scient. med. Agata Łaszewska (co-PI) (Medical University of Vienna)

The recent, on-going SARS-CoV-2 pandemic has had devastating impacts on healthcare systems, economies, and communities worldwide. In light of these developments, future post-COVID-19 care will need to implement innovative strategies to narrow the gaps in the uptake of healthcare across socio-economic groups.

Our project aims to offer a first step in this direction by bringing together Medical Humanities/Cultural Studies and Health Economics. We aim to contribute to a better understanding of how translational efforts can take all of the above factors into consideration and improve post-COVID-19 care.
