What are the negative impacts of commercialization of the German healthcare system on patients and healthcare workers?
This question will be addressed by Kira Hülsmann and Carla Usala in their guest lecture on the 2022 health strike in North Rhine Westphalia, Germany.
Social change and its institutionalization through public policies is commonly a result of the contestation of social forces.
During this guest lecture, Kira Hülsmann and Carla Usala, nurses and activists who co-organized the 2022 health strike in the German federal state of North Rhine Westphalia, share the negative impacts of commercialization of the German healthcare system on patients and healthcare workers and how trade unions and the campaign 'Profits are harmful for your health' challenged this logic.
