NOVEMBER 30 KICKS OFF THE VTH EDITION OF THE CONFERENCE LONG-TERM CARE IN POLAND - TODAY AND TOMORROW - Header image
Over the past two decades, the divide between health and social policy in Poland has become very pronounced. It is particularly noticeable at the level of home care, which has been clearly discriminated against in recent years in the policies of the outgoing government. During the 8 years that the United Right was in power, we also did not see systemic solutions. Today we have a new parliament and in the near future a new government.

A panel on specialized home care will be initiated by Dr. Lukasz Jurek of the Department of Sociology and Social Policy at the Wroclaw University of Economics. An introduction to the debate on the deinstitutionalization of long-term care will be made by Dr. Paweł Kubicki, Professor at the Warsaw School of Economics and Head of the Department of Social Policy at the Warsaw School of Economics.
